Garlic Salted Asparagus

Fresh produce, what’s that? Growing up, most of our vegetables came from a can. So, when my husband and I got married I was determined to change things and expand my palette. We began by steaming broccoli and cauliflower. This was a step in the right direction – eating two fresh vegetables, while expanding my food pyramid. This was great, but it was quickly short lived. That’s when we began searching for more fresh vegetable recipes.

There were 3 things I was searching for in a vegetable recipe:

  1. Quick and Easy
  2. Using Fresh Produce
  3. Adding new vegetables to the list

One evening while talking with a co-worker, she shared a great recipe, which hit all my criteria. It sounded so good, I just had to give in a try! It has quickly become a stable!

Garlic Salted Asparagus


Green Beans


  1. Garlic Salt
  2. Olive Oil
  3. Asparagus or Green Beans (green beans are by far my favorite, but the asparagus is good too.)
  4. Storage Ziploc Bag


(I have done this recipe so often that I don’t use exact measurements. I recommend testing out different amounts to see what works for you. But for this post, I will try to give you a suggested starting point.)

Step 1: Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Step 2: Cut open the bundle of asparagus or green beans

Step 3: Place vegetable in a storage Ziploc Bag

Step 4: Pour a little less than ¼ cup olive oil in the Ziploc Bag. Close the bag and shake until vegetables are completely coated.

Step 5: Pour about 3 tablespoons of garlic salt into the bag and shake until vegetables are well coated.

Step 6: Place asparagus of ungreased baking sheet and cook in oven for 25 minutes.
