Roasted Lemon Asparagus made with fresh lemon, olive oil and just a pinch of salt and pepper for a really simple side dish to any entrée.


  • 1 lemon
  • 1 pound asparagus
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Wash and trim the asparagus. Place on a baking sheet.
  3. In a small bowl, add 1 tablespoon olive with juice from half the lemon (about 1 tablespoon, more for a stronger lemon flavor). Mix together.
  4. Pour lemon juice/olive oil mixture over asparagus. Make sure to coat the asparagus thoroughly.
  5. Season with just a pinch of salt and pepper.
  6. Slice the other half of the lemon. Place lemon slices over asparagus.
  7. Place in oven for 10 minutes. *


*Cook longer depending on personal taste but asparagus should be crispy when served.
