Asparagus has always been one of my favorite vegetables. With great fiber content and a unique taste, it’s a go-to for my Primal and keto meals. Another plus: it’s simple to prepare. That said, however, it does take a bit of precision. The best way I’ve found to prepare asparagus is roasting, and nothing beats the tanginess of lemon to complement its taste. Serve it up with some flavorful chicken or salmon for a full Primal and keto-friendly dinner.
Prep Time: 2 minutes
Cook Time: ~12 minutes
1 bunch asparagus
1/3 cup Primal Kitchen® Lemon Turmeric Dressing and Marinade
1/4 cup Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil
Zest of ½ lemon
Juice of ½ lemon
Salt and pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 425 ºF.
Cut ends off of fresh asparagus and discard.
Place asparagus on a sheet pan. Toss with salt and pepper, avocado oil, and Lemon Turmeric Dressing and Marinade.
Roast in oven for 10-15 minutes, depending on thickness of the asparagus. Remove from oven and toss with fresh lemon juice and zest. Enjoy!
