A quick and easy way to prepare asparagus - just roast it in the oven with some balsamic vinegar, olive oil and salt. The cooking time will vary depending on the thickness of the asparagus.

Method Prep:5min › Cook:25min › Ready in:30min
Preheat the oven to 200 C / Gas 6.
Spread trimmed asparagus out on a baking tray in an even layer and drizzle with olive oil. Roll asparagus back and forth so it is evenly covered with olive oil.
Cook in the preheated oven until asparagus is lightly browned and easily pierced with a knife, 20 to 30 minutes depending on the thickness of the asparagus. Flip asparagus after 15 minutes. Season with salt and drizzle with balsamic vinegar. Bake until balsamic vinegar starts to caramelise, about 1 minute more.
