Description

This roasted asparagus is the easiest side dish! Bake it in the oven for about 10 minutes with garlic, olive oil, and lemon slices. Perfection!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 pound asparagus
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 small garlic clove
  • 1 lemon (Zest and 1 teaspoon juice from half, plus slices from the other half)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Cut off the tough bottom ends of the asparagus. Add the asparagus stalks to a foil-lined baking sheet. Drizzle them with olive oil, and add the kosher salt and a few grinds of black pepper. Add the zest of 1/2 lemon and mix with your hands. Thinly slice 4 lemon wheels from the lemon, then add them right on the tray. 
  3. Bake 10 to 15 minutes, until tender when pierced by a fork at the thickest part. The timing will depend on the thickness of the asparagus spears. Toss with the 1 teaspoon lemon juice, then serve.
