Is your meal missing a fresh, healthy, crunchy element? This Quick Garlic Lemon Asparagus is the answer. And the best part? Use this same recipe for any green vegetable.

Asparagus is probably my favorite vegetable (I only say probably because asking me my favorite vegetable is like asking me my favorite song. Is picking one really possible?).

Green tip: Eating seasonally is one of the best (and most delicious) ways to support local and decrease your carbon footprint. Local foods have less associated transportation costs and fuel emissions. Simply put, eating seasonally = less environmental impact. Check when asparagus is in season in your area with this Seasonal Food Guide.

It has a great texture—especially when oven-baked, a strong flavor profile, and is a great way to add beautiful, fresh color to any dish. It’s packed with nutrients, antioxidants, and it’s a natural diuretic.

But this is not a love letter to asparagus. It’s an all-encompassing recipe for all things green. Quick Garlic Lemon Broccoli, Quick Garlic Lemon Brussels Sprouts, Quick Garlic Lemon Green Beans. It’s ALL. SO. YUM.

This Garlic Lemon Asparagus is fresh, earthy, cheesy, and zesty! The perfect side dish. But, don’t limit this recipe just to asparagus. Use the same ingredients and techniques for all your green vegetables!

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces fresh asparagus

  • 1 teaspoon Montreal Steak Seasoning

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 2 cloves garlic

  • 1 lemon

  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 375 Fahrenheit.
  • Rinse asparagus and break or slice off ends. Allow to dry before proceeding.
  • Line a baking sheet with tin foil. Place asparagus in columns, trying not to stack them on top of one another, and cover with olive oil.
  • Sprinkle Montreal Steak Seasoning and diced garlic on top.
  • Slice lemon and set slices on top of the asparagus.
  • Roast until crispy, about 25 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle parmesan cheese on top.

PRO TIPS

  • Fresh garlic has much more flavor than garlic that is already minced. Try using fresh garlic for this recipe.
  • This recipe works for any green vegetable, not just asparagus.
