Roasted Asparagus with Lemon

This Roasted Asparagus with Lemon is super easy to make and is a great healthy side dish for any meal.


  • 1 bunch of Asparagus
  • 1 Lemon sliced into pieces
  • 1 Tbs EVOO
  • 1/8 tsp ground Sea Salt
  • 1/8 tsp ground Black Pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Rinse Asparagus and cut roughly 1/2 inch off of the bottom stem.
  3. Add to large roasting dish or baking sheet leaving a little space in between each one.
  4. Place the lemon slices on top of Asparagus.
  5. Drizzle Olive Oil over Asparagus.
  6. Sprinkle with Salt and Pepper.
  7. Bake until tender or crunchy depending upon your preference, about 10 to 15 minutes.
  8. At about 10 minutes the Asparagus is cooked and has a slight crunch, which is how I prefer it. The longer you cook it, the more softer it gets. It tends to get a little stringy when cooked longer.
