The BEST Way To Reheat Asparagus

Have you recently cooked up a big batch of asparagus? If you’ve cooked more asparagus than you can eat in one sitting, you may be wondering if you can keep it and reheat it later.
Well, the good news is that you can. But not all reheating methods are equal.
I have experimented with five different reheating techniques to find the one that delivers the best crunch and freshest taste.

Equipment

Ingredients
 

  • 1 portion asparagus
  • 1 sprinkle seasoning of your choice

Instructions
 

  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C).
  • Arrange the asparagus on a baking tray in a single layer and sprinkle with a seasoning of your choice.
  • Cover loosely with foil (optional).
  • Heat the asparagus for 3-5 minutes.

Notes

Foil vs no foil
I tested reheating the asparagus both with and without foil. Adding foil effectively steams the asparagus instead of roasting it since the foil traps moisture.
The texture of the asparagus was very similar, except the spears with foil were slightly wetter.
Where there was a significant difference was in the taste.
The asparagus without the foil had the signature ‘roasted’ taste, while the asparagus with the foil tasted more green and fresh. It’s up to you which flavor you prefer.
