Roasted Asparagus

Serves: 2


Fresh Asparagus - 20
Olive Oil - 2 tablespoons
Lemon Juice - 2 teaspoons
Garlic, minced - 1 clove
Peppercorns, freshly ground - 1 teaspoon
Salt - to taste
Red Chilli Flakes - 1 teaspoon (optional)
Mozzarella Cheese, shredded - 3 tablespoons


  1. Preheat the oven to 400F (~205C).
  2. Line a large rectangular baking tray with an aluminium foil or use a baking tray directly.
  3. Cut about 2" of the hard end of asparagus and wash them thoroughly. If the end is still hard and thick, peel it lightly at that end.
  4. Place the asparagus on the baking tray in a single layer with overlapping on another.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, freshly ground peppercorns and salt. Drizzle this on laid asparagus. Toss the asparagus or roll them such that the olive oil mixture coats them completely.
  6. Sprinkle red chilli flakes (if using) and mozzarella cheese shreds.
  7. Place then tray in the oven, roast the asparagus for about 15 minutes or until they are soft enough to insert a skewer but still firm and crisp.
  8. Serve.
