Step 2: Ingredients
1 good sized bunch of asparagus (see picture for reference)
3 cloves of garlic
1 generous sprinkling of salt
Optional: You can add any different kind of seasoning based on your tastes, ie. 'garlic salt', or 'pepper'...
Step 3: Asparagus First
Place cleaned asparagus on a rimmed baking sheet.
Step 4: Preparing Garlic
You can use your hands, or if you have this handy green silicone tube (mine is OXO) then it will be three times as easy to peel your garlic.
You can mince your garlic with a knife (the hard way) and get all of the garlic, or you can put it in a press (the easy way) and waste a bit of it.
Once minced/pressed, sprinkle garlic evenly over asparagus. Don't worry about this part too much--you'll be stirring it in with your hands soon.
Step 5: Salt, Oil, and Stir
Sprinkle salt generously over the whole of the asparagus. Then Pour about a 1/4 cups worth evenly over the dish. Stir asparagus thoroughly with your hands to incorporate all added ingredients in with the asparagus.
Step 6: Bake
Bake in preheated oven (400 degrees) for about 15 minutes.
Step 7: Done!
