I like to keep the prep work simple with this parmesan roasted lemon garlic asparagus quickly cooking it in the oven with panko breadcrumbs.
1 tablespoon olive oil
Juice of 1 lemon
1 garlic clove minced with a grater
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 pound asparagus, ends trimmed
1/4 cup whole-wheat panko breadcrumbs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan plus more for serving
Flaky sea salt for serving
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper. Toss with the asparagus and arrange in a single layer on a parchment-paper-lined sheet pan. Combine the Parmesan and breadcrumbs and sprinkle over the asparagus.
Roast for 8 minutes until the asparagus turns bright green. Season with flaky sea salt and top with additional Parmesan before serving.
