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.

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.

  1. 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.
  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!
