🥘 Ingredients Needed

• A Bunch of Asparagus
Melted Ghee, Olive Oil, or Melted Butter
21 Seasoning Salute or Salt & Pepper

🍽 Equipment Needed

  • Aluminum Foil
  • A Sheet Pan
  • A Cooling Rack
  • A Basting/Pastry Brush

🥣 How to Make It

First, preheat your oven to 375° F.

Next, line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil. (Picture 1 – 2) (Not mandatory, but makes cleanup really easy!)

Then, set a cooling rack on top of the foil. (Picture 3)

Next, rinse your asparagus and break off the ends. Don’t cut the ends off. The best way to do this is by finding the natural breaking point in the asparagus by grabbing the end and the middle and gently bending it. The asparagus will snap at the correct spot. Some pieces will be longer than others, but that doesn’t really matter. (Pictures 4 – 5)

(Picture 7) Brush ghee all over the asparagus, then sprinkle 21 Seasoning Salute all over the asparagus. You can also use Everything Bagel Seasoning, Salmon Seasoning, or Bayou Blast Seasoning.

Then, put your asparagus in the oven for 25 minutes, checking it at 20 minutes as oven temperature can vary. Remove from the oven and serve!
