Roasted Asparagus Recipe

Roasted Asparagus Recipe

I love roasting asparagus — it’s so easy, and I put foil under the asparagus to keep the clean-up minimal. Just wash, trim (asparagus naturally breaks at the stalk end at the perfect point if you break by hand), and roast!


  • 2 pounds asparagus, washed and ends trimmed
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon chopped tarragon leaves
  • 2 teaspoons garlic
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice (equivalent to ¼ lemon)
  • Salt and pepper (add to taste, at the end)


  1. Preheat oven to 375 F
  2. Pile asparagus onto a baking sheet
  3. Combine olive oil, tarragon, garlic and lemon juice, and pour over the asparagus spears, turning them to make sure they’re covered evenly
  4. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper
  5. Roast for 15-17 minutes
