Roasted Asparagus with Herbs and Capers

Makes: 2  servings


  • 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.
