This lemon roasted asparagus recipe is the perfect side dish to take to a dinner party or serve with a side of protein. The asparagus is roasted and takes under 20 minutes to make. 


  • 1 bunch of asparagus
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2-3 tbsp avocado oil or EVOO
  • Pinch of salt & cracked black pepper
  • half a lemon, juiced
  • 2 tbsp pine nuts (can sub walnuts)
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, shaved or grated


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 and set aside a baking sheet for the asparagus. 
  2. Wash and trim 1 inch (or the stalky part) off the bottom of the asparagus. Pat dry. 
  3. Place the dry asparagus on the baking sheet. Drizzle with oil, garlic powder, salt and cracked black pepper. 
  4. Roast at 375F for 15-18 minutes, depending on thickness of asparagus. 
  5. While the asparagus is roasting, toast the pine nuts for 1-2 minutes over medium heat, stirring constantly in a small sauté pan. 
  6. Once the asparagus has finished cooking, remove from the oven, squeeze half a lemon over the asparagus, sprinkle the toasted pine nuts and top with parmesan cheese. 
  7. Serve immediately and enjoy!


Can sub walnuts for pine nuts. 

If you have littles that will eat asparagus, I recommend cutting up into bite size pieces before roasting. It makes it easier to serve because I hate the sound of the knife on the plate when you are trying to cut it after cooking.
