Description

Lemon parmesan asparagus is a delicious way to serve a classic spring vegetable. This side dish is quick and easy to make in less than 20 minutes. 


Ingredients

  • 1 pound medium asparagus, ends trimmed
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper (or to taste)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice (or more to taste)
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, freshly grated

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400F.
  2. Place asparagus on a large half sheet baking pan and season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle minced garlic on top and drizzle with olive oil. Toss well to coat evenly.
  3. Arrange the asparagus in a single layer on the baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes until tender yet crisp. Note that if you are using thinner asparagus, you will have to adjust the cook time by about 5 minutes. 
  4. Drizzle with lemon juice and sprinkle parmesan cheese on top. Serve immediately.

Notes

How to store: Allow leftover lemon parmesan asparagus to cool to room temperature before storing it in the fridge inside an airtight container. Eat within 3-5 days.

How to reheat: Reheat roasted asparagus the same way you baked it — in a preheated 400F oven. It only needs about 4-5 minutes to heat completely. Serve immediately. The Parmesan will melt when reheating, so feel free to add extra freshly grated Parmesan on top.
