Roasted Asparagus with Garlic, Lemon & Thyme

 Roasted Asparagus with Garlic, Lemon & Thyme Recipe

Check Out: How to Prep Asparagus (Tutorial)

This is a simple recipe for roasted asparagus. I added lots of chopped garlic for the wonderful, garlicky taste while lemon and thyme complement the dish with their mild citrusy flavour.  This is a delightful side dish which will complement any meal. Garlic, lemon & thyme are common ingredients used for roasting chicken or turkey, so if you have leftover of these ingredients, this is one additional fuss-free side dish you can make for the Christmas dinner.

    I like the roasted garlic on the asparagus, also the lemon and herbs. Maybe I can try on other veg – cos it is not asparagus season (though they still sell them in supermarkets)

    Hi noobcook:

    Can i ask where can i purchase thyme? Don’t seem to be able to get in cold storage.

      Hi Mary,

      fresh thyme is usually readily available at Cold Storage – at the chiller section where the vegetables are. You can also find them at carrefour, NTUC finest and selected NTUC outlets. If you really can’t find, you can use dried thyme – where the bottled herbs and spices are.

    The flavour of roasted asparagus is very attractive, not the same as the branched ones. Love your way of baking them with those fragrant herbs.

    One of my fav veges. I remembered in uni, we bought a whole box from the markets for $10!! oh man, we had asparagus for the whole week!!!

    I like how u added lemon and thyme to it too. Simple flavours but they worked so well. I like stir frying them as well with abit of butter.

      sounds like a good deal and very fresh too, that’s the advantage of living in Australia hehe

    Lately I am using thyme on everything! I love it and the combo with lemon and garlic is incredibly delicious!

    An interesting execution, and also a refreshing side dish indeed, be it with meat or seafood : ).

    I usually have my asparagus stir-fried or poached in stock….but I like your roast version…looks delish.
