This Garlic Roasted Asparagus is the most flavourful and perfect side dish! The recipe is quick, easy and delicious served at brunch, lunch or dinner!
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Servings: 2 people


  • 16 spears Asparagus - woody ends removed
  • 1 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 tbsp Garlic
  • Salt - to taste
  • Paprika - optional to taste
  • Basil - optional to taste - dried or chopped fresh
  • Parsley - optional to taste - dried or chopped fresh
  • Thyme - optional to taste - dried or chopped fresh
  • Oregano - optional to taste - dried or chopped fresh
  • Black pepper - optional to taste - freshly ground


  • Preheat oven to 425-450°F (220-260°C).
  • Snap the tough ends off of the asparagus and arrange them in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet or in a glass casserole dish.
  • Mix together minced garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper and drizzle over the asparagus.
  • Gently toss to make sure it is well coated and then just pop it into the oven to roast.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until fork-tender. Cutting the asparagus into short pieces allows them to cook faster.
  • Remove from the oven and serve.



Other Herbs and Seasonings you could add:
  • dill, sage, rosemary, tarragon and/or cilantro
  • Red pepper flakes
  • cherry tomatoes (sliced in half), which adds more juice
  • Drizzle with a bit of honey for added sweetness
  • Grated Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning add great Italian flavour
  • And why not pesto sauce
How to Keep Asparagus Fresh Longer
To keep your asparagus fresh for a long time after you get it home from the grocery store, place it with the stems down into a large mouth jar. Then, add fresh, cool water to the jar, covering about 2 inches of the stems with water. Place the jar into the refrigerator and store for up to a couple of weeks. When ready to use it, break away the tough ends and prepare your recipe as instructed.
