Roasted Asparagus

Asparagus is a classic spring vegetable, and roasting or grilling are by far the best ways to prepare it. These methods will give an enjoyably fibrous-yet-soft texture, a juicy stalk and crispy charred leaves at the head. Asparagus is full of many nutrients such as Vitamin A, E, C, K and folate, and the fiber strands make an excellent prebiotic to feed your gut bacteria. 


  • 1 bunch asparagus, woody ends trimmed off
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil, extra virgin
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp salt to taste
  • 1 tsp pepper

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Trim asparagus to remove tough, woody ends and discard them. On a baking sheet (line with aluminum foil or parchment paper for easy cleanup), lay down asparagus. Drizzle asparagus with olive oil and lemon juice, mix around with hands to coat evenly. Season with salt and pepper. 

Turn oven to 400 degrees. Place asparagus in oven and roast at 400 for 15 minutes, checking at around 10 minutes to see if tips have started to brown slightly and asparagus has softened a bit. Cook until asparagus is soft and has crunchy browned bits, about 15 minutes total (this is very dependent on your oven and the thickness of the asparagus stalks; watch it to be sure it doesn’t overcook.)

When the asparagus is done, serve immediately. Makes 2 servings.
