Roasted asparagus recipe

This roasted asparagus recipe is super simple, quick and tasty! When asparagus is in season and you can add that beautiful bright green side dish to your plate, you’ll be happy you did. I think any vegetable can be elevated when it’s roasted, covered in parmesan cheese and some yummy seasonings!

Ingredients
  • 1 bunch asparagus
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp additional seasonings of your choice
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees

  2. Wash and cut off the woody ends of your asparagus. Most likely this will be one to two inches off the bottom.

  3. Peel the out side of the asparagus if needed. I do this if the stalk is to thick. I like the stalk to be about 1/2 inch in diameter.

  4. Place the asparagus in a large zip lock bag.

  5. Add the avocado oil, 1/4 cup parmesan cheese and your seasonings.

  6. Shake well so the asparagus is well coated.

  7. Lay the asparagus out on a lined baking sheet so it is all on one layer.

  8. Sprinkle the remaining parmesan cheese on top of the asparagus.

  9. Put the asparagus in your oven and roast until the tips start to turn a little brown. 10 to 20 minutes. If you like your asparagus left with a little crunch, roast closer to 10 minutes. If you like it more soft, go closer to 20 minutes.
