Perfect Roasted Asparagus

Perfect Roasted Asparagus

The best meals aren’t overly complicated. Perfect Roasted Asparagus is simple, easy, and makes for a healthy side dish or complement to a full meal. We served ours with our chickpea quinoa pilaf which is also absolutely delicious, or you can add it to the side of a steak, fish, or other hearty vegetables.


Perfect Roasted Asparagus

  • 1 count fresh asparagus, thick bottom stems removed
  • 1-2 Tbs olive oil
  • Generous pinch of salt and pepper
  • 3-4 garlic cloves, minced
  • Optional: chickpea quinoa pilaf and 1-2 Tbs capers


  1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF
  2. Then, prepare your asparagus by rinsing, drying, and chopping off the very thick bottom of the stalk.
  3. Next, transfer the asparagus to a roasting pan.
  4. Coat the asparagus with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Place in the oven and roast for 15-20 minutes.
  5. Add in the garlic (and capers) 5 minutes before the asparagus has finished cooking.
  6. Remove from the oven, serve and enjoy!

Flavor pairings could include thyme or paprika. As mentioned previously, this can be a side dish to a protein or served into a grain bowl.
