  • I always roast or grill my asparagus... for roasting, I drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper and put it in a 425 oven for about 20 mins or so.

  • It should be steamed to retain its vitamins. Also it depends on the diameter of the pieces. The skinnier the shorter time.

  • Are you steaming it or cooking it in a little water? Either way, not long or it gets soggy.

  • We always cook it for longer than that; I couldn't tell you how long exactly but we just go until it's starting to look nice and soft. It gets sweeter and softer the longer you cook it. Just don't go too overboard and turn it to mush. Haha

  • I pan sear in olive oil with some sault and pepper for a few minutes before its too soft.
