Description

Lemony Roasted Asparagus baked in the oven with lemon, garlic, shallots and olive oil. Can be made in 20 minutes! An easy vegan side dish, perfect for spring.


Ingredients

  • 1 large bunch (1 lb) fresh asparagus, tough ends trimmed (see notes)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 12 garlic cloves, finely minced (optional)
  • 1 small shallot- finely sliced (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest  (divided)
  • ———
  • squeeze lemon juice
  • Optional:  finely grated parmesan or pecorino cheese, toasted nuts (slivered almonds, pecans, walnuts,  or pine nuts

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400F
  2. Toss trimmed asparagus with olive oil, garlic, shallot, lemon zest, salt & pepper. Lay them out in a single layer on a  parchment-lined sheet pan.
  3. Roast until just tender, about 15-25 minutes, depending on size and thickness.
  4. Once tender ( yet still vibrant) place on a serving dish and finish with a little squeeze of lemon juice, more lemon zest and optional nuts or cheese.

Notes

To better gauge where to trim the asparagus, break one of the ends off. Where it naturally wants to break is roughly where you should cut the rest.

Pencil thick asparagus takes roughly 15-20 minutes of roasting. Based on this adjust your baking time.
