Tips For Trimming Asparagus
The last inch or inch and a half of asparagus spears can be tough and woody, so snap these ends off and discard. If you can’t snap them off with your fingers, then trim off that end with a paring knife.
If the spears are still a little woody or extra thick at the bottom, use a vegetable peeler and gently remove some of the outside skin until it’s the same width.
How Long To Roast Asparagus
Try to buy asparagus that is consistent in length and width to ensure even cooking.
Depending on the size of the spears, you can roast shorter, thinner stalks at higher temperatures like in the recipe below. They will cook fast, so keep an eye on them! Larger spears require longer roast times at lower temps like 375˚F to 400˚F.
What Do They Go With?
Reheating Roasted Keto Asparagus
It’s nearly impossible to reheat roasted asparagus the wrong way.
- Microwave: Place the spears in a glass dish with a little water or butter. Cover with plastic wrap and zap them in the microwave for a couple of minutes.
- Skillet: You can also quickly reheat them by sautéing in a skillet over medium heat.
Roasted asparagus reheats quickly, so there is no need to put them in the oven unless it's already being used for something else!
