Roasted Asparagus

Please share:

To go along with my love of all roasted vegetables, here’s another one that I wouldn’t eat any other way. I really think asparagus tastes gross, but once it’s roasted, it’s amazing. And it’s so simple. Well, just as easy as roasting any other vegetable, but without all the chopping and dicing.

Roasted Asparagus

Yield: 4
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 12 minutes
Total Time: 17 minutes


  • 1 lb Asparagus, or as much as will fit on your rimmed baking dish
  • Sea Salt, to taste
  • Fresh Ground Black Pepper, to taste
  • 1-2 Tbsp Avocado Oil, or light olive oil
  • OPTIONAL: Balsamic Vinegar


  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Line a rimmed baking dish with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Snap the cut ends off all the asparagus (as close to the end as you can) and place on the baking dish in a relatively single layer (it's okay if a few overlap).
  3. Drizzle with the oil to generously coat the asparagus. If you need more or less than what is called for, that's ok. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss with a spatula (or your hands) to evenly coat all the asparagus.
  4. Put in the preheated oven and cook for 12-15 minutes, depending on the thickness of your asparagus. I prefer the skinny stuff, so it only takes about 12 minutes.
  5. Remove from pan and serve immediately. Lightly drizzle with balsamic vinegar, if using.

    1. I just got one of those a couple weeks ago and it didn’t even dawn on me to use it for that. Thanks for the advice!

  1. This was fantastic! Thanks for the recipe. I added some coriander and it was delicious. Love your site. I have told all my clients about it as a great resource for primal living. Cheers!
