Looking for a simple side? This Garlic Lemon Roasted Asparagus is packed with flavor, doesn't take a ton of time to throw together, and the brightness from the lemon is the perfect compliment to anything you're serving! Toss our GARLIC LEMON PEPPER spice blend on your asparagus, and you've got yourself a side that's sure to please.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound asparagus, trimmed and rinsed 
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, divided 
  • 1 teaspoon GARLIC LEMON PEPPER Spice Blend 
  • Zest of 1 lemon 
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon (save the remaining half to cut into wedges for serving)

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 375ºF. 

Place the asparagus on a rimmed baking sheet and toss with olive oil. Sprinkle with the spice blend and toss so the asparagus is evenly coated. 

Roast for 10-15 minutes, until bright green and fork-tender. You’ll need less time for thin asparagus, more for very thick asparagus. 

Remove the asparagus from the oven and finish with the lemon zest and lemon juice.
