I have found a delicious way to prepare Asparagus! We had it last night for the first time and LOVED it. With asparagus at a good price in our area at the moment, we'll be having it a few more times this season.
1 bunch (about a pound) of asparagus spears
1 tsp olive oil
2 large garlic cloves, thinly sliced
Cover the asparagus spears and garlic with the olive oil (I used my hands).
Lay the asparagus on a cooking sheet that has been sprayed with non-stick spray.
Sprinkle on the asparagus:
1 tsp chopped thyme
salt & pepper
Roast in a 400 degree oven for 8-10 minutes until crisp tender.
P.S. Just found out there are some asparagus recipes on Food for Friday!
