The perfect vegetable side dish

This lemony roasted asparagus recipe is a wonderful addition to any dish. It’s so simple to cook but so flavoursome. We love serving it with pasta dishes, warm salads and risottos. It’s a great way to add extra green veggies to a meal. The lemon juice brings out the lovely delicate flavour of the asparagus whilst also giving it a little added freshness.

Asparagus is also currently in season, which is another reason to be eating it right now. We really try to eat seasonally where possible, so make sure you enjoy this recipe soon whilst asparagus is at its best!

We not serve it with our Spaghetti Aglio e Olio or Butternut Squash, Sage & Vegan Bacon Bit Risotto.
