Roasted White Asparagus

1 bunch White Asparagus
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Pepper
1 Teaspoon Oregano
1 Teaspoon Basil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat asparagus with Olive Oil in a baking dish, then add spices. Ensure all spices are distributed evenly and move asparagus to a baking pan. Bake for 20 minutes or until asparagus is at desired tenderness.

If you’ve not had white asparagus, you need to try it — it tastes completely different than green asparagus (it’s sweeter, more meaty, and doesn’t have that typical asparagus smell). I couldn’t find this at the local Giant, but walked right into Whole Foods and found it within a couple seconds. This recipe is a really simple way to serve asparagus (the recipe can really be used for any type of vegetable you are looking to roast) and a much better way to cook vegetables instead of boiling them or drowning them in butter.
