Tender oven roasted asparagus finished with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice? Now that’s what I call the perfect side dish of spring greens to round out a simple yet healthy meal.

Roasted Asparagus on a white plate

You know spring has sprung when there’s fresh asparagus roasting in the kitchen. My go-to breakfast routine is to make this asparagus with poached egg and prosciutto. I also love to plate roasted asparagus alongside a juicy baked salmon filet for dinner. But just like any meal prepped veggie, oven roasted asparagus goes a long way with a little creativity (as seen on my spring meal prep!).

Oven Roasted Asparagus – Just 4 Ingredients!

Sure, you can give roasted asparagus a delicious makeover with various spices or sauces. But a simple batch tossed with olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper always hits the spot. It’s a classic!

  • Asparagus: With asparagus season in full swing, you should be able to find various asparagus (thick and thin, plus green, white, and even purple!). But for this recipe, I’m using medium-sized green spears.
  • Olive Oil: I always opt for extra-virgin olive oil when roasting vegetables, but you can also use avocado oil.
  • Garlic: Let me emphasize the word fresh here. Stick with fresh garlic over garlic powder – trust me.
  • Salt & Pepper: Just a sprinkle of both for the perfect savory touch. Plus, you can always add more if needed when taste testing at the end.

How To Store Fresh Asparagus

If you’re not cooking the asparagus right away, here’s a tip to keep it as fresh as possible for roasting. Keep it dry, unwashed, and trim the ends. Then place the bundle upright in a jar or container filled with 1 inch of water. It will keep in the fridge for 2 to 3 days.
