A super easy roasted asparagus side dish - sometimes it’s the most simple of flavour combinations that can be the best. 

INGREDIENTS

METHOD

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. 
  2. Remove the very ends of the asparagus by slicing off 2 cm or snapping the ends off using your fingers (if you are using young or the smaller asparagus this isn’t necessary). 
  3. Place the asparagus onto a tray with baking paper along with the garlic cloves and sliced lemon and top with olive oil and a sprinkle of salt. Roast for 25 minutes. 
  4. Remove the tray out of the oven and sprinkle with freshly grated parmesan cheese. 
  5. Serve the asparagus along with the garlic cloves and lemon as a side.
