Simple, yet perfect, this Roasted Asparagus is so easy you’ll be making it all spring long. It only takes a few ingredients and very little effort.



  • 1 bunch asparagus, trimmed (about 1 pound)
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice


  1. Preheat the oven to 425ºF.
  2. Place the asparagus on a baking sheet. Drizzle with the olive oil, and mix to coat the asparagus, then make sure the asparagus is in a single layer.
