Roasting asparagus is one of the easiest ways to cook this vegetable.
Set the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6 and remove any woody tips off the asparagus where they naturally break apart.
Put them on a roasting tray, drizzle with oil and season with salt and pepper and stick them in the oven for 12 minutes until they are tender.
Sauteed or stir-fried
To saute asparagus, you’ll want to cut them into small pieces of about two inches.
Saute them over high heat in an oily or buttery saute pan until they’re slightly brown and tender, which will take around three to five minutes.
You can do the same thing in a wok with oil and stir fry the asparagus.
