Cheesy Roasted Asparagus

Since we started our lower carb (heading towards keto) diet, we’ve made some yummy recipes. I love side dishes with veggies so baking new sides has been fun! We didn’t grow up eating much asparagus so making new recipes with it is pretty cool. The health benefits of asparagus are cool too! They have almost no carbs, are full of vitamin K, and are high in folate. So go enjoy those asparagus spears!

For my recipe I used about half a bunch of asparagus to make 2 servings. If you want to cook your whole bunch, it should be enough for 4 servings. You would need to change the measurements accordingly to 3-4 Tbsp olive oil, 1 1/2 Tbsp minced garlic cloves, 1-2 tsp salt, & 1/2 tsp pepper. Increase the shredded cheese to about 1 1/2 – 2 cups total.

Spears are rinsed, trimmed, towel dried most of the moisture off and placed on a nonstick baking sheet.
Mixed together olive oil with garlic cloves and seasonings in a small bowl.
Drizzle mix all over spears and bake at 400 degrees F for 8-10 mins.
Remove from oven and top with cheeses, put back in oven and set to broil on high for about 5 mins or until cheese is melted and browned.
I served up ours with a flat iron steak and sautéed zucchini.
