This flavorful asparagus recipe will fit in with just about any meal. Garlic gives this combination of asparagus and mushrooms extra flavor.

Use sliced button mushrooms or use a wild mushroom assortment. If the mushrooms are small, you can leave them whole.

What You'll Need

  • 1 pound asparagus
  • 8 ounces sliced mushrooms or left whole if small
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium clove garlic, minced
  • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

How to Make It

  1. Heat the oven to  425° F (220° C/Gas 7).
  2. Oil a large rimmed baking sheet or pan.
  3. If the asparagus stalks are thick, peel with a vegetable peeler. 
  4. Bend each stalk gently; the tougher ends should snap right off. Alternatively, use a knife to trim the stalks. Discard the ends or put them aside for vegetable broth.
  5. Toss the asparagus and mushrooms in a large bowl or food storage bag with the olive oil and garlic until well coated.
  1. Arrange the coated vegetables in the prepared baking pan. Sprinkle liberally with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  2. Roast for 15 to 20 minutes, until tender and lightly browned.
