GARLIC PARMESAN ASPARAGUS roasts in a hot oven in just minutes and it turns out so tender and flavorful! The squeeze of lemon finishes it off just perfectly.
Well, that’s it.
I love asparagus.It’s taken me 30-plus years to learn to love it, but here we are and I’m kind of suddenly obsessed.
I’d mentioned that I was experimenting with different ways of eating this healthy green veggie and I’m so glad I kept trying. (I feel like I’m trying to convince my kids to try their veggies here. But really! If you keep trying that gross veggie you hate, you’ll eventually find a way you love it! Don’t give up!)
Another veggie success story? Brussels sprouts! These Brussels sprouts and bacon will turn you into a believer too!
This is just about the simplest asparagus recipe out there, but let’s go through some details so you guys get it just right…
You’re basically just going to toss together asparagus, oil, minced garlic, Parmesan, and salt and pepper.
Toss that on a baking sheet and pop it in a hot oven.
When the asparagus is finished roasting, you’ll squeeze a half of a lemon over it.
Why lemon? It brightens up the asparagus just beautifully and gives it this fresh pop of flavor. It’s the perfect contrast to the roasty, toasty goodness.
How long to roast asparagus:
I like to roast my veggies in a 425 degree oven. This allows the natural sugars in the vegetables to caramelize a bit and really gives it that roasted flavor.
Asparagus roasts at 425 degrees in 13-15 minutes, depending on how tender you’d like it.
