I’ve been going crazy with asparagus lately. There’s something about seeing the fresh spring produce hit the shelves that gets me so excited. I’m all, come on, asparagus! Come on, radishes! I see you too, lettuces! Let’s do this! We’ve been eating this garlic herb asparagus several times a week which, I have to be honest, is kinda rare. I mean, I like asparagus. But these days, I really like it.

I think the real trick is making sure you don’t have mushy asparagus once it’s been cooked. The two big tips I have for that are a super hot oven + a short cooking time. Trust me on this. Do not over cook these asparagus. The fast cooking time is just a bonus too if you’re making this on a weeknight. You can have your veg ready in as little as 12 minutes. Boom.

If you happen to follow me on Instagram you got a giggle out of my ‘6 inch ribbon curls’ reference.
