Oven-Roasted Asparagus recipe

Salty and savoury, the roasting method kills the natural bitterness of asparagus. Try it next to grilled fish or lamb.


1 bunch of thin asparagus spears, trimmed
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 ½ tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese (Optional)
1 clove of garlic, minced (Optional)
1 teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon lemon juice (Optional)

Directions / Instructions

Step 1

Preheat an oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

Step 2

Place the asparagus into a mixing bowl, and drizzle with the olive oil. Toss to coat the spears, then sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, garlic, salt, and pepper. Arrange the asparagus onto a baking sheet in a single layer.

Step 3

Bake in the preheated oven until just tender, 12 to 15 minutes depending on thickness. Sprinkle with lemon juice just before serving.
