Asparagus spears seasoned with garlic are roasted in the oven until tender and crispy and finished with fresh lemon - it’s a side dish that pairs perfectly with just about anything!

Roasted Asparagus with Lemon

  • Total Time: 15
  • Yield: 4 1x


  • 1 lb Asparagus (woody ends trimmed) 
  • 1/2 Tbsp Avocado Oil
  • 1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
  • Salt & Black Pepper (to taste)
  • 1 Tbsp Lemon Juice (freshly squeezed)


  1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF (205ºC) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  2. Arrange the trimmed asparagus spears on the baking sheet and drizzle with the oil and season with the garlic powder and a generous shake of salt and pepper (to taste). Toss or roll the asparagus around to evenly coat in the oil and seasoning.
  3. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes (for thin spears) or 12 to 15 minutes (for thicker spears) or just until the ends are fork-tender and the tips are crispy. 
  4. Remove from the oven and drizzle with the lemon juice. Season with additional salt and pepper if needed then divide between plates.
  5. Refrigerate any leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 days. Serve beside any protein (salmon, chicken, steak, pork chops, shrimp, sausages), pasta or rice dish.
