Seasonal Eating - Asparagus

Australian asparagus comes into the market throughout Spring and Summer. 
This easy, healthy recipe is perfect served either warm or chilled, as a side dish with grilled fish or chicken.

Roast Asparagus
Ingredients (Serves 4)
3 bunches asparagus
1 lemon – juiced and zested
3 cloves of garlic – peeled and sliced
3 tbs olive oil
100g shaved parmesan cheese
1. Pre-heat oven to 180°C.
2. Trim woody ends from the asparagus then place spears in a single layer in a baking dish. Add the garlic slices and lemon zest, coat with the olive oil. Cover the dish (use foil if you don’t have a lid) and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the asparagus is tender.

3. Dress the roast asparagus with 1tbs lemon juice and the shaved parmesan.
