Ingredients

  • 1 bunch asparagus
  • lemon zest from one lemon
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely minced
  • 12 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Garnish: a squeeze of lemon, fresh herbs, optional parmesan

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400F
  2. Trim asparagus: Hold one spear of asparagus in your hand, and with your fingers snap off the rough end. Note where it naturally breaks. Use this as a guide to trim the remaining asparagus, laying it next to the others. Cut the remaining spears to match this length.
  3.  Toss the trimmed asparagus in a bowl with olive oil, garlic, lemon zest, salt & pepper.
  4. Lay spears out in a single layer on a  parchment-lined sheet pan.
  5. Roast until just tender (yet still vibrant green), about 15-25 minutes, depending on size and thickness, tossing halfway through. 
  6. Once tender squeeze with lemon juice, and give a good toss. Taste for salt, adding more if needed. 
  7. Place in a serving dish and garnish with any of the optional garnishes.
