  • 1.5 lbs thin asparagus spears, ends trimmed
  • 3 tbsp avocado oil or extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp grated all natural Parmesan
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced (mandatory)
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1.5 tsp fresh lemon juice (optional)store FRESH asparagus in the refrigerator


Preheat an oven to 425 degrees f.

Place asparagus in a large bowl, and drizzle with oil.

Toss to coat , then sprinkle with Parmesan, garlic, salt, and pepper.

Arrange the asparagus onto a flat baking sheet in a single layer.

Roast in your preheated oven until just tender, 13-15 minutes depending on thickness.

Sprinkle with lemon & serve!
