This is one of my favorite go to side dishes for when we have people over or are asked to bring a side dish. This recipe is super healthy and quick to make!
I prefer to make it pretty garlicky but feel free to use as much as you want. I also like to use olive oil to drizzle on it when it comes out of the oven; it gives a hint of flavor and adds a nice layer of healthy fats to the dish. If you want to make it more decadent you can add in some Parmesan cheese.
Enjoy!

Ingredients
  • 2 bunches of asparagus
  • 8 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1 shallot sliced thinly
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • Dash of salt and pepper
  • Olive oil to drizzle
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Chop off bottom quarter of asparagus, I find them to be tough to chew.
  3. Mix asparagus, garlic, shallot, lemon juice, salt and pepper and some olive oil (roughly 2 tbs) in a bowl.
  4. Place asparagus mixture onto a tin foil lined cooking sheet and roast for 10-15 minutes, mix half way through to avoid burning the garlic.
  5. Drizzle with some olive oil and serve.
