Roasted Garlic Asparagus – Garlic and lemon asparagus that is super simple and a perfect side dish that is bursting with flavor!
Asparagus is our favorite vegetables and making oven roasted asparagus could not be easier or more delicious. We love roasted vegetables so much better than any other way of cooking them. and they are so easy to make. The simplest of ingredients can give you the most amazing flavors. Just some garlic, lemon, salt and pepper and your done!
We truly love asparagus so when springtime comes and it’s on sale we have it probably a couple of times a week! That might seem a little much for some but we really do enjoy it. In the summer we throw it on the grill. It really is so versatile. We love any leftovers in an omelette with some swiss cheese.
Your going to wash your asparagus and need to dry it or what I do is wash it earlier in the day if I can and set it on a dish towel to dry. you want to do this so the olive oil will stick to the asparagus. Once the asparagus is dry Place it on a baking sheet with parchment paper.
This gives you perfectly roasted asparagus with crunchy, crispy garlic bits and just the right amount of crispiness. We like our asparagus crisp but tender so we usually never buy asparagus that is too thin. They never have enough crispiness for our family.
So try making this Roasted Garlic Asparagus for your family the next time your making asparagus instead of just steaming it or boiling it. I bet they will love it! Especially if they love the flavor of garlic. and the little bit of lemon zest brightens up the flavors perfectly! I bet it will be a huge hit!!
