Roasted Asparagus Almondine

My husband I can I easily polish off a pound of asparagus in one setting. We've been through a few pounds of it so far this spring, raw, steamed, marinated, in pizza, in chicken salad, to name a few. This time I decided to roast it and further, to include almonds. The taste of this dish was scrumptious and the texture of the toasted almonds with the asparagus was extremely satisfying.

Roasted Asparagus Almondine
1 pound asparagus, rinsed, tough stem ends snapped off
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 - 2 cloves garlic, pressed
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Sliced almonds

Marinate asparagus in the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt, and pepper for about 30 minutes. Arrange the asparagus, in a single layer, on a foil lined baking tray and sprinkle with sliced almonds. Roast in a preheated 400 degree oven for 8 to 10 minutes, until just tender and beginning to brown.


  1. This looks good. My husband loves asparagus. I am going to make this for him soon. Thanks!

  2. Looks great! Asparagus is the bomb, I can't wait until next month when my local farmers market opens up and I can get some really fresh.

  3. Not only does this look wonderful it will taste divine. The ingredients are such naturals together. Thanks.

  4. Roasted asparagus is one of my favorites. I never thought of adding almonds.
