You will love the two easy asparagus recipes I’m going to share with you in this post. Best of all, you’ll prepare both on the same baking sheet, giving you two quick and convenient side dishes with minimal clean-up!
Asparagus. You kind of love it or hate it, right?
I kind of feel like the people who hate asparagus probably just haven’t had it the right way. When asparagus is prepared like I’m going to show you in this post, it tastes AMAZING! (I know the asparagus skeptics are shaking their heads right now, but it’s true.)
Over the last few years, I’ve been trying to feed my family as many clean, fresh foods as possible. I’m proud to say we’ve made a huge shift in our diet and “green stuff” is a daily occurrence and not something we eat a little of once or twice a week.
In fact, my kids ASK for foods like asparagus and green beans now! But they have to be prepared the right way, like the two easy asparagus recipes I’m going to share with you in this post. (For green beans, try this Crock-Pot Green Beans + Video recipe.)
When is the Best Time to Buy Asparagus?
In the Northern Hemisphere, the best time to look for fresh asparagus is late February all the way through June. If you want the best fresh asparagus, April is your best bet. You can check local farmer’s markets or just befriend someone with a bunch of asparagus in their garden. 😉 (Asparagus keeps coming back year after year so it’s a pretty great thing to plant!)
Two Easy Asparagus Recipes — Step by Step
Two easy asparagus recipes = two pans, right? Nope! I’m going to make this stupid-easy for you by using a single baking sheet for both asparagus recipes. When I say easy, I mean EASY!
Before you do anything, wash and prepare your asparagus. Tip: Take 1 asparagus and snap towards the bottom (non-leaf part). Place the single piece of asparagus with the bundle and cut the ends off.
Step #1: On a baking sheet, line asparagus. Drizzle with olive oil to coat and sprinkle with Lemon Pepper Seasoning.
Step #2: On half place Parmesan and top the other half with sliced lemons.
Step #3: Cook at 350 for 18-22 minutes, until tender and cheese has melted.
Yum! Two easy asparagus recipes for you and your family to enjoy.
