How Long to Cook Asparagus in the Oven
It takes 10 minutes to roast asparagus in a 400-degree oven. There are other approaches to how to cook asparagus, like boiling or steaming, but it's all too easy to end up with a soggy, flavorless mess with those methods. The goal is for the asparagus to be both crisp and tender but not soggy, which is easiest to do in the oven. You'll also get a slightly charred flavor that really makes the asparagus shine!
