Rated :

Makes: 2 servings View Nutrition Facts


  • 1 pound  asparagus, trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon  extra virgin olive oil
  • Coarse sea salt or kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons  chopped fresh herbs, such as a mix of basil, tarragon, and parsley (or all basil or all parsley)
  • 2 teaspoons  drained capers, chopped


1. Preheat the oven to 450 F.

2. Toss the asparagus in a bowl with the olive oil and season lightly with salt and pepper.

3. Spread the asparagus in one layer on a baking sheet. Roast until just tender, 10 to 12 minutes, depending on the thickness of the asparagus (thinner ones will cook more quickly).

4. Transfer the asparagus to a serving dish and toss with the herbs and capers. Taste and adjust the seasoning, if necessary. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Delicious and easy way to liven up the flavor of asparagus. More flavor that just steaming! Be careful of the asparagus tips so they don't scorch, you may want to keep them separated and only toss them on the baking sheet for the last 5 minutes of baking. If you don't have the fresh herbs or capers on hand, no big deal, still tastes great. You can also mix 1 teapoon horseradish(from a jar) with a tablespoon olive oil or butter and then stir into the roasted asparagus, it really gives it a kick.
