Lemon Garlic Roasted Asparagus

Low-carb snacking option that couldn't more delicious and easy!



“Velocius Quam asparagi conquantur!” – meaning ‘quicker than boiling asparagus,’ is an ancient Roman saying for something that can be done quickly. So, why not take advantage of the ease of asparagus to ensure your body gets all the vegetables it needs each day!

Delicious, healthy, and super easy a snack is all one can ask for. And this asparagus recipe is just the right package. I enjoy roasting (and relishing) these to the bits. Crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, this vegetable had myriad benefits too! It detoxifies your system, reduces puffiness in your skin, soothes inflammation, and the likes.

Cook’s Notes Pro-tip- If you want to take it up a , place the asparagus spears on an oven-safe wire rack. This would allow the hot air in the oven to contact the asparagus on all of its sides!
