Asparagus is packed with fiber, folate, glutathione, calcium, iron, vitamins A, C, and a lot more. It is also an anti-carcinogen and antioxidant! On that note, this wonder food also makes a great and  nutritious side dish to nearly any meal! It isn't difficult to choose the best ones to cook. Check for firm asparagus stalks with firm dark green or purplish tips. Make sure that the bottom of the spears are not dried up. If they are, that means they're not that fresh anymore. You can enjoy asparagus with nothing more than a drizzle of  olive oil but you can also cook asparagus in many different ways. Here are 3 super easy asparagus recipes you can try at home.

Just toss and turn them in. Take them off the ziplock and arrange asparagus spears in a single layer on a large baking sheet.

Season with salt and pepper. And you're ready to roast them in a pre-heated oven (425 degrees). If you are roasting thin asparagus spears, it may take 10 minutes. If they're thicker, 15 minutes will do. It's really up to you  :). You can check if they're cooked by sticking a fork in them to see if they're tender.

 

And you're done! You can squeeze some fresh lemon on it to give that bright and tangy taste. To make it more interesting, sprinkle some Parmesan cheese on top. It's simple, fast, and delicious!

    These are great asparagus recipe tutorials. I have always “winged” it when cooking asparagus with inconsistent results. Now I have a focus to my cooking.

    Thank-you for the article. Having worked as a dishwasher in a Chinese Restaurant over 40 years ago, I do prefer the pan fry method and have learned that asparagus is an excellent vegetable in stir fry recipes using ginger root &/or other oriental spices. It is especially good with heart & tongue. We have used it with venison, pig, lamb & elk tongue. Beef tongue needs to be skinned, but the pork, venison & lamb meat can be cut up and eaten with the tongue skin intact. My neighbors used to discard the tongues of all their game animals until I instructed them in this meal prep. We no longer receive that discard, but I was glad to disseminate the information to eliminate waste.
