Asparagus is one of my favorite vegetables and I especially love it with lemons. This recipe is extremely quick and easy to prepare for any side dish or appetizer. Fresh lemons and asparagus pair so perfectly together. This fresh app is packed with all kinds of antioxidants so be sure to eat these greens!
1 bunch of fresh aspsaragus (about 1 lb); ends removed
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp lemon pepper
1 lemon; zested and juiced
Sea salt and pepper for taste
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a large bowl, toss the asparagus with olive oil, lemon zest and juice, and lemon pepper until evenly coated.
2. Sprinkle with a pinch or two of sea salt and pepper. Place in baking pan and roast for 8-12 minutes, or until the tips begin to brown and the asparagus is tender. Enjoy!
