Quick and Easy Roasted Asparagus

With spring just around the corner the first vegetable to pop out of the ground is asparagus.  Asparagus is loaded with nutrients such as fiber, folate, and vitamins A, C, E and K.  Additionally, it is packed with antioxidants and can help detoxify your body.  I highly recommend grabbing some from your local farmer’s market and adding it to your next meal.

Here is a quick and easy recipe to get the asparagus from you fridge to your plate in under 15 minutes:

What you need:

·         Olive Oil Cooking Spray

·         Garlic Powder

·         Onion Powder or Onion Flakes

·         Sea Salt

·         Pepper

·         Fresh Grated Parmesan Cheese (optional)

·         Cookie Sheet

1.       Preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit

2.       Wash and trim your asparagus. (To trim, simply snap the bottom of the stalk off where the soft meets the hard.  If picked properly, this should already have been done)

3.       Spray cookie sheet with non-stick spray

4.       Add cleaned and trimmed asparagus

5.       Spray asparagus generously with cooking spray

6.       Sprinkle generously with garlic and onion powder

7.       Sprinkle lightly with sea salt and pepper

8.       Bake at 425 for 10 minutes

9.       Sprinkle lightly with fresh parmesan and enjoy!
