Carmelized Asparagus

We had a date night on Monday night and it was really fun! I love going out on during the week nights..then you don’t have to deal with all the crazy drunkards downtown haha We met up with a my fiances brother, his fiance, and another couple and went out for some tacos and margaritas at Taco Escobarr…DELICIOUS! Then we went our separate ways and we made our way to a few different bars, enjoying each others company, talking, and just generally having a good time ๐Ÿ™‚

Its always so nice having a few hours with just Drew…we get so caught up being parents 24/7 then sometimes we tend to let our relationship fall by the wayside..we try to go out once a month, just the two of us, and bring all the romance back! ๐Ÿ˜‰ hahh I’m a lucky lady, hes one amazing guy xo

Anyhoo..asparagus! Its my all time favorite vegetable, aside from Brussels sprouts! ๐Ÿ˜› There are so many ways to cook it, or dishes to add it too. These caramelized asparagus, to.die.for. I mean LOOK at the little sweat crystals on these babies! They’re beautifully green, crunchy, flavorful, and so amazing! I LOVE them! They’re the perfect addition to any side at dinner time, and perfect for any BBQ, all summer long! Make these!

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes

Yield: Serves 2

Carmelized Asparagus


  • 1 pound asparagus
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • Juice from one Lemon
  • 1 Tablespoon garlic, finely minced
  • Freshly cracked pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Rinse asparagus by repeatedly running them under cold water.
  3. Snap off the bottom ends of the spears. (They will naturally break off above the tough stem)
  4. In a small bowl whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and a few cracks of the black pepper.
  5. Lay the asparagus on a baking sheet and drizzle over oil mixture.
  6. Toss until all the asparagus spears are thoroughly coated.
  7. Separate the asparagus so they aren't touching, you don't want them to steam and become mushy, you want them to be crunchy and roasted.
  8. Cook for 10-12 minutes until lightly browned in spots.
