Roasted Asparagus with Lemon

roasted asparagus with lemon

These lemon roasted asparagus have slightly charred edges from the oven heat and a bright summery flavor of fresh lemon. 


  • 1 bunch asparagus, rinsed, patted dry, and ends trimmed
  • 1 lemon, half juiced and half sliced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 425F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  2. Place the asparagus onto the baking sheet, drizzle with lemon juice, olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat the vegetables in the seasonings, then spread them in an even layer. 
  3. Using a pairing knife, slice the remaining half of the lemon and place the slices over the asparagus. 
  4. Roast for 10 minutes or until golden brown and tender. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and serve.
