Asparagus is one of the easiest vegetables to clean, trim, and cook. My favorite way is to toss with olive oil with good flaky salt and coarse ground pepper and then roasted in the oven.

You can use asparagus numerous ways in your cooking with the most popular as the main ingredient in soups, side dishes, and casseroles.

How to Store Asparagus

There are a few ways to store asparagus in the refrigerator. Properly stored, cooked asparagus will last for 3 to 5 days in the refrigerator.

1 – Stand the asparagus up in a drinking glass or tall jar with about an inch or two of water, making sure all the ends are sitting in the water. Loosely cover the asparagus with a plastic bag. (I will cut the ends if they are dry before placing in the jar.)

2 – Refrigerate the asparagus in shallow airtight containers or wrap tightly with heavy-duty aluminum foil or plastic wrap.

How to Cook Asparagus in the Oven

Roasting asparagus is very easy.

First, preheat your oven to 425 degrees F.

Toss the asparagus with your favorite oil and seasonings.

Bake in the preheated oven until just tender, 12 to 15 minutes depending on thickness.

TIP: Use parchment paper for easy clean up for your roasting pan.

How to Grill Asparagus

If you want to grill your asparagus instead of roasting, it’s just as easy as using your oven!

One easy way to grill asparagus is to toss trimmed asparagus lightly in vegetable or canola oil since they have a higher smoke point.

Once your asparagus is well oiled, sprinkle your favorite seasoning

Heat a grill or grill pan over high heat and grill the asparagus until the stems are tender and slightly charred (approximately, 3-4 minutes).

How to Steam Asaparagus

If using an asparagus steamer pot, fill your asparagus pot 1/3 to 1/2 full with water.

Bring the water to a boil and carefully take off the lid to avoid the rising steam and stand your trimmed asparagus tip ends up. By placing the tips up will ensure that the tougher end of the stalk is in the water, where they are boiled, and the more tender tips are out of the water, where they are steamed.

Asparagus will steam in about 3 – 5 minutes, depending on the thickness.
