An easy and healthy asparagus recipe that is delicious and kid-friendly!



1 bundle asparagus spears, about 1 pound

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 tablespoon lemon juice

2 cloves garlic, finely minced

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

2 tablespoon freshly grated parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Break one spear of asparagus at the bottom to remove woody end. Use that break point as a guide to cut off the ends for remaining spears. Place on rimmed baking sheet.
  3. Drizzle olive oil over the spears, then add lemon, garlic, salt, pepper, and parmesan cheese. Use your hands to toss it all together and coat the spears.
  4. Roast in the oven for 10-15 minutes, depending on the thickness of your asparagus. If you have very thin spears, it will be closer to 6-8 minutes. You can test for doneness by picking up one piece by the cut end and it should bend slightly without being completely limp.
