Roast Asparagus

8 Nov

I’ve managed to get back in the habit of taking photos of food for the blog.  But then I don’t get around to posting for a while, and since my “style” tends towards drive-by-cooking I can never remember exactly what I did by the time I DO remember to to blog it.

Hence the silence.

Anyway, one thing I do remember is how I cook spuds.  And since they kindly included themselves in the photo I know how I cooked the asparagus.  Technically they were baked, not roasted, because there was no meat involved, but it would be the same if there WAS meat in there, so I’m sticking with roasted.

Roast Asparagus

I have my oven on 200c/400f to bake potatoes.

Trim the woody ends of asparagus.

In the last ten or 15 minutes of baking time chuck your asparagus in too, lightly sprinkle with salt if you want, and roll in whatever fat you have in there.

Turn and check each five minutes ’til they look good.  The ones in the photo were cooked for 15 minutes.

Convince your children that yes they do like asparagus, and they have so eaten it happily before, and they just need to get used to it again because it is a seasonal food.

All done!
