OVEN BAKED GREEN ASPARAGUS

May 18, 2014

I’m not a big fan of white asparagus, but green asparagus is just great. It’s done in no time, tastes delicious and doesn’t get all soggy immediately. Personally I love to toss it on the grill for a few minutes, but baked in the oven is the next best thing.

Before cooking, grilling, frying,… asparagus you need to get rid of the woodsy parts. With green asparagus thats fairly easy. Just take the lower third of the stalk into both hands and brake it in two. It will automatically break in the right place. Smart asparagus :)
