Ingredients for This Tasty Side

See the recipe card below for a full list of instructions and ingredient amounts!

Asparagus

You can use thick or thin asparagus, which ever you prefer. The thinner the asparagus the shorter time it will take to cook.

Make sure you break off the bottom of the stems, as they are tough and woody and won’t become tender as they are cooked. I like to either compost them, or save them and throw them in a homemade vegetable stock!

Olive Oil

I like the flavor of olive oil, but you can use a different neutral oil like sunflower oil or vegetable oil if desired.

Garlic

I like using fresh garlic cloves for this, instead of jarred or pre-minced garlic. If you don’t have fresh garlic on hand, you can use garlic powder.

Italian Seasoning

I like to use a salt-free Italian seasoning blend on this asparagus, which adds great flavor!

Lemon

Fresh lemon juice is the most flavorful, but you could use bottled if desired. For extra flavor, you can add a little lemon zest as well.

Parmesan Cheese

I can find a low sodium shredded parmesan cheese at my local grocery stores, which has 85mg of sodium per 2 tablespoon serving. If you can’t find a low sodium parmesan cheese, you can skip it for this recipe or use nutritional yeast instead.
