  • 1 lb Asparagus or as much as will fit on your rimmed baking dish
  • Sea Salt to taste
  • Fresh Ground Black Pepper to taste
  • 1-2 Tbsp Avocado Oil or light olive oil
  • OPTIONAL: Balsamic Vinegar


  • Preheat the oven to 425°F. Line a rimmed baking dish with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Snap the cut ends off all the asparagus (as close to the end as you can) and place on the baking dish in a relatively single layer (it's okay if a few overlap).
  • Drizzle with the oil to generously coat the asparagus. If you need more or less than what is called for, that's ok. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss with a spatula (or your hands) to evenly coat all the asparagus.
  • Put in the preheated oven and cook for 12-15 minutes, depending on the thickness of your asparagus. I prefer the skinny stuff, so it only takes about 12 minutes.
  • Remove from pan and serve immediately. Lightly drizzle with balsamic vinegar, if using.
