This asparagus is great for low carb and keto diets, and is a great delicious side dish for weeknight dinners, Sunday suppers, and even fancy dinner parties!
I love how simple and fresh this asparagus recipe tastes – it is always one of the first side dishes gone off our table.
Fresh roasted asparagus is fabulous as a low carb side dish – but it is also delicious chopped in sandwiches, omelettes, frittatas, salads, pastas, and rice casseroles.

I will often make a double batch when roasting asparagus – and serve half right away, with half chopped and saved in the refrigerator overnight to make in frittatas the next morning, or in stir frys for lunch!
This is our family’s go-to recipe for the most delicious asparagus – I know your family will love it as much as ours does too.

How to Roast Asparagus
To make this recipe, you will need:
- 1 bunch asparagus, woody ends trimmed off
- 2 tbsp olive oil, extra virgin
- 2 tsp garlic salt or garlic powder
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp sea salt, celtic (skip if using garlic salt)
- 1 tsp pepper, fresh cracked
These tips and tricks will help you get perfect oven baked asparagus every time – and is a wonderful base recipe you can use to add your favorite flavors to!
-Preheat oven to 425 degrees, and turn down to 400 degrees when placing asparagus in oven to cook. This will help the asparagus to cook quickly so it can crisp up without going soggy.
-Cook on a rimmed baking sheet, to reduce risk of hot oil sliding off when pulling out of oven. Asparagus roll often when moving in the oven – as does the oil – so a rimmed baking sheet helps to keep you safe and your oven clean!
-Liberally season with garlic salt and pepper. If using garlic salt, don’t add extra sea salt.
-Lay asparagus in a single layer to cook faster and more evenly. Asparagus should at the very least be all laying flat on your baking sheet – preferably with a tiny bit of space in between each spear. Don’t worry too much about spacing your asparagus evenly – but try to not have them all on top of each other when roasting for the best texture.
-Use a high quality of olive oil since this recipe is so simple – you will taste the oil you use more than many recipes.
-Top with parmesan cheese and lemon juice for even more delicious low carb asparagus flavor!
-This recipe is best in asparagus season in spring – but is delicious year round. While out of season asparagus is likely imported or grown in a greenhouse, my favorite tip to tell if it is fresh is to sniff the spears in the store. Fresh asparagus should have no smell – but asparagus starting to go off will smell slightly like fish.
-Trim woody ends off asparagus. Whether you snap the asparagus to tell where to cut, or cut off a couple inches, be sure to trim the woody ends from asparagus since they are bitter, tough, and very hard to chew.
