I created this lemon garlic asparagus recipe for my sister, Janice. She loves asparagus, flavored with simple spices. So the last time our family got together for a big meal, I made this for her. This oven-roasted asparagus recipe is simply one of the best asparagus dishes I've ever served to my family!
I love asparagus because it's full of fiber and so many vitamins and minerals. I've highlighted it before in my Grilled Asparagus with Lemongrass Garlic Rub.
So what's the best way to make asparagus? If you're wondering what do with asparagus, there are many delicious asparagus dinner ideas, and this baked garlic asparagus is just one idea!
This lemon garlic asparagus recipe couldn't be easier to make. Asparagus and garlic are a wonderful combination, and I whipped up a light sauce of olive oil, lemon juice (you can use juice from a fresh lemon, or bottled lemon juice works just as well), black pepper, and dried thyme. Then I tossed that with the asparagus, roasted it in the oven for about ten minutes, and then had a lovely vegetable side ready to eat!
And here's a little tip to make the prep for this asparagus dinner side all that much easier: You don't have to cut the asparagus! Simply give it a little bend, and the end will snap off. This cuts down prep time, making this a dish you can whip up in less than 20 minutes! I hope you enjoy this lemon-roasted asparagus recipe as much as we did.
