  • 2 bunches asparagus ends trimmed
  • 2-3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Juice and zest of one lemon
  • 3 garlic cloves minced


  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast OR sub with grated vegan parmesan if not paleo OR whole30


  1. Preheat oven to 400 F. Grease or line one large baking sheet (or two medium baking sheets) with parchment or foil for easier cleanup.

  2. Arrange the asparagus in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil then sprinkle with lemon zest, salt, and pepper to taste. Toss to coat well.
  3. Roast for 10-12 minutes or until the asparagus is tender-crisp. Toss with lemon juice and garlic. Place on a platter and top with nutritional yeast or Parmesan. Serve immediately.
