The Best Asparagus 

I like to call this recipe “how I got my husband to eat asparagus”

When we were in college, I found myself cooking a good bit in Mr. Bou and his brothers’ apartment kitchen.

When I wasn’t making masterpieces like chicken breast and Pastaroni, I was trying to trick him to eat veggies.

This dish was an instant hit and still is! Mr. Bou even told his mom to make this dish and I almost fainted!! That’s when I knew it was love. Jk, but kinda.

Now be warned, this isn’t your lightly salted and steamed asparagus that you’ll get as a side at a restaurant.

These asparagus are slightly crisp from being cooked at a high temperature and coated in olive oil. They also have a hint of spice to them. Oh yeah, yum city.

Let’s see if we can change some veggie haters into lovers.

He literally couldn’t wait until after the pictures were taken. Crazy pants.

Preheat your oven to 400

Rinse the bundle of asparagus and then snap the bottom edges off. Usually about 1 to 2 inches.

Lay the veggies on a baking sheet and sprinkle the following over the asparagus:

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon Tony’s
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt (optional, Tony’s is a seasoning salt)

Toss to combine seasonings and veggies on the baking sheet and pop in the oven

Bake for 10 minutes and then move the asparagus around. Bake for another 8 minutes.

Let cool and then serve with pork chops or hamburger steaks
