  • 2 lbs asparagus, rinsed

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F and line rimmed baking sheet with silicone mat or unbleached parchment paper.
  2. To trim asparagus, snap the end of one spear and cut remaining asparagus same length with a knife. Usually 2″ off, that’s the chewy stringy part you don’t wanna eat.
  3. Arrange asparagus on the sheet in a single layer. Drizzle with oil, then sprinkle with garlic powder, salt and pepper. Using tongs, toss to coat evenly.
  4. Bake for 12 minutes. Serve hot or cold.
