Baked Asparagus

Oops!  I almost forgot that I promised to share the Baked Asparagus recipe from our Thanksgiving Feast.  It's really simple but tastes wonderful.  This is for the garlic lovers out there!

Baked Asparagus

2 bunches of fresh asparagus - snap off the tough ends by holding the spear by the cut end and snapping the top like a green bean.  It will break in just the right place.  You can use the ends for veggie stock.
2-3 cloves fresh garlic - chopped fine
Sea salt and course ground pepper
juice of one lemon
EVOO

Place garlic, asparagus and EVOO in a large baggie.  Spinkle with sea salt and course black pepper.  Marinate for 20 minutes.
Place in a single layer on a foil lined cookie sheet or shallow baking dish.
Squeeze lemon juice over top.
Drizzle generously with EVOO
Bake at 400° for 20 minutes.

  1. Love baked asparagus. I haven't put lemon juice on it before though, I will have to try that next spring when we go foraging for asparagus.
