Baked Asparagus


Recipe Info

  • Servings : 6
  • Cook Time : 5m
  • Ready In : 5m


  • 120ml balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 bunches asparagus, tough ends snapped off
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 100g Parmesan, grated
  • 50g croutons


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 175 ̊C. Place the vinegar in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat and simmer, swirling the pan occasionally, until the vinegar is reduced by half. Remove from the heat.

Step 2

Bring a pot of water to boil. Add the salt and the asparagus and blanch until barely tender, about 1 minute. Drain and rinse under cold water. Place the asparagus in a baking dish. Sprinkle with salt to taste, drizzle with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, and turn to coat. Sprinkle over the parmesan and croutons.

Step 3

Bake until the spears are tender and the cheese is browned and almost bubbling, about 5 minutes. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons of the reduced balsamic vinegar and the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil. Serve with the remaining reduced balsamic vinegar on the side.
