Butter Roasted Asparagus
About 1-2 Tablespoons Butter
Salt and Pepper
1 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
Preheat oven to 425°F.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Rinse and prepare the asparagus. To make sure that you don't serve gross woody bits of asparagus there is a simple trick, hold the top part near the buds in one hand and gently bend the bottom end backwards until it snaps somewhere. Discard the lower portion that is the gross woody bit and enjoy the top portion that is perfectly ripe and tender when cooked.
Rinse and dry the asparagus. Melt the butter and lightly coat the asparagus in the butter. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Bake in preheated oven for between 10-12 minutes. When fresh out of the oven sprinkle the lemon juice over the asparagus. Serve hot.
