Roasted Asparagus Lemon Recipe
This recipe is simple and delicious. You’ll love this asparagus 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.
What is the best season for asparagus?
Asparagus is a spring vegetable. Buy it in the spring when the prices are most affordable and it’s at the peak of freshness.
Is thicker or thinner asparagus better?
Thicker is better. The taste and texture are both far better in thicker stalks than thin.
Should I soak asparagus before roasting?
You can wash it to clean the asparagus stalks but there is no need to soak them. Be sure to remove all of the grit.
Why is my roasted asparagus mushy?
For the best flavor, I really enjoy oven roasting our asparagus. Never boil it because it can become mushy. If it turns out mushy, you have cooked it too long.
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 lemon roasted asparagus 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.
