Garlic Zing Roasted Asparagus

Roasted garlicy asparagus, great as a side or appetizer.


  1. Use fresh asparagus with thin stalks - I have found the older and thicker the stalk, the stringer the end result will be. It does not affect taste for me, but texture is a big part of my meal as well.
  2. In a sheet pan lay out asparagus.
  3. (I usually add ingredients right on food).
  4. Drizzle veggies with oil (toss around).
  5. Sprinkle garlic powder over veggies (toss again to coat).
  6. Place in preheated HOT oven (400 degrees).
  7. Cook for 7- 10 minutes. Garlic powder will burn, so keep an eye on your asparagus. I usually start to check when I can hear frying. I will also take them out after 3 minutes and flip - I like them toasty. Pierce thickest stalk to check for tenderness. salt to taste. Serve hot for best result - but will be ok if warm.
  8. I like to pair them with beef dishes because gravy sets this dish off perfectly.

We really liked this. I had very fat stalks so I split them in half before preceding. The did not turn out too stringy.

I have already made this twice and it turns out really well. No changes needed, and I will certainly use this recipe often.
