An easy and delicious way to cook asparagus.
Pre-heat oven to 400°F.
In a large bowl whisk together olive oil, thyme, salt and pepper.
Add asparagus and thoroughly coat with olive oil mixture.
Place asparagus on a sheet pan. Roast for 20 minutes until slightly crisp and tender.
Sprinkle with orange zest and serve. You can also squeeze a little fresh orange juice over the roasted asparagus for an extra citrus flavor boost.
Thoroughly wash the asparagus to remove any soil that may be hiding in the tips.
If the asparagus stems are hard and tough use a vegetable peeler to remove those areas.
