How to roast asparagus

Roasting asparagus makes a simple side dish, perfect for serving straight from the oven. You should always roast asparagus in a hot oven, and make sure that you don’t overcrowd the roasting dish as this will cause some of the asparagus to steam and cook unevenly.

Method

1
Preheat the oven to 200°C/gas mark 6
2
Wash and prepare the asparagus
3
Toss the asparagus in olive oil and salt then spread out evenly in a roasting dish, making sure the spears have plenty of room
4
Place in the oven for 8-10 minutes or until tender. Serve immediately

Variations

Nathan Outlaw parboils the asparagus before roasting for 1 minute, refreshing in ice water before roasting to help retain the colour.
