After much searching here on the site I had not found a recipe that incorporated all that I liked in a roasted asparagus. This recipe has a wonderful flavor and pairs nicely with most any dish.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Cut bottom half inch off of asparagus to rid yourself of the typically hardened ends.
  3. Optional, to avoid having that tough stringy end on your asparagus, peel the bottom inch to two inches with veggie peeler.
  4. Place peeled asparagus, lemon juice, olive oil, kosher salt in bag or container and shake until they are evenly coated.
  5. Place coated asparagus in baking dish (I use glass) and organize so they are laying flat.
  6. Dust the asparagus ever so lightly with garlic powder.
  7. Next, shake on some sesame seeds to your liking (Measurements are approximated). Don't skip the sesame, it makes them so tasty.
  8. Lastly, dust with Parmesan cheese and place in oven to bake for 20 to 25 minutes depending on how tender you like your asparagus.
  9. Enjoy!
