Project Description

Baked Asparagus


  • 1 Bunch of Asparagus
  • 1-2 Tbsp Olive oil
  • Spice (see below)
  • For seasoning, choose one:
    • 1/2 tsp. Black Truffle Salt
    • 1 tsp. Black Garlic Dust
    • 2 tsp. Garlic Pepper
    • 2 tsp. Italiano Mix, plus 1/2 tsp. salt
    • 1 tsp. Original or Roasted Garlic Dust, plus 1/2 tsp. salt
    • 2 tsp. Sweet Corn Rub
    • 2 tsp. Herbes de Provence


  1. Preheat oven to 400F
  2. Snap off the woody bottoms of the asparagus. (Hold the asparagus stalks, one at a time, near the cut end, and snap it like kindling. Fortunately the asparagus breaks in just the right spot!)
  3. Place asparagus in a single layer on a cookie sheet, and drizzle the olive oil over it. Roll it around to make sure all the stalks are evenly coated, then sprinkle with the spice. Bake until tender or crunchy depending upon your preference, about 12 to 20 minutes.
