Roasted Asparagus Lemon Recipe

Asparagus is one of the vegetables we almost always serve during the holidays. Since it tends to be a bit more expensive than the traditional peas and carrots, we enjoy it during the holidays as a treat or in the spring when the prices are lower. Another favorite spring recipe of mine is my Schnitz Un Knepp recipe.

For the best flavor, I really enjoy oven roasting our asparagus. Never boil it because it can become mushy. Steaming is great, but during the holidays we are always short on burner space on the stove top. It’s just so much easier to toss it on a pan and roast it in the oven for a few minutes.

You won’t believe how delicious this recipe is and it’s so simple to make. You can prepare the vinaigrette ahead of time and keep it in the refrigerator to save even more time when preparing dinner. Then just toss the asparagus on the foil-lined sheet and you’re ready to go. You can even cook this in the oven at the same time your meat is cooking. If you have extra asparagus left over, you may want to try this homemade cream of asparagus soup.

This is the perfect holiday side dish when you’re short on time. You can serve it with turkey, ham, pork or beef depending on the type of main dish you plan on having.  What’s your favorite way to serve asparagus? Or, why not try this Schnitz un Knepp.

  1. I am finishing a small tin of basil-flavored olive oil from a trio I received and just loved the first one I tried, a lemon-flavored olive oil. So surprising how lemon pairs with the olive oil to compliment the veggies so well and roasting is a perfect way to do that too. This looks simple and delicious.
  2. Awesome recipe!! I love roasted asparagus and I think the lemon would pair nicely with the asparagus! I usually just toss the asparagus in a little olie oil and salt and pepper. I like mine a little crispy too!
  3. I have only had asparagus a few times. I would like to try it myself. I really liked it and think at least one of the times, it was made something like this.
