Roast for 25 minutes or until golden and tender. Steam beans separately. If using asparagus spears, add to tray for the last 10 minutes of cooking time.

Transfer onto second baking tray and roast for 15 minutes (for medium) or until cooked to your liking. Transfer to a plate, cover loosely with tinfoil and set aside for 5 minutes to rest. Slice thinly.
