Oven Roasted Asparagus and Tomatoes

Roasted Asparagus and Tomatoes are so delicious, they are easy to prepare with great flavors. Garlic and lemon with juicy ripe tomatoes and crunchy-tender asparagus!

Oven Roasted Asparagus


We love to eat oven-roasted asparagus in our home and now is the perfect time to eat them while they are in season. My hubby came home with 3 pounds and I couldn’t resist preparing some. I found this recipe on Taste of Home and decided to modify it.

Roasting vegetables really enhance their flavors, and it is a great way for children to eat them. Check out my Roasted Cabbage Steaks, Roasted Sweet Potatoes, and Broccoli Salad and my Cauliflower Nuggets.

How To Roast Asparagus In The Oven

  1. For this oven-roasted asparagus recipe, trim the asparagus to remove tough ends and cut cherry tomatoes in halves.
  2. Toss with olive oil, minced garlic, lemon juice, nutritional yeast flakes, and salt. Add extra lemon slices.
  3. Place asparagus, tomatoes in a single layer on a prepared baking sheet.
  4. Oven roast asparagus 400 for 20 minutes. You may omit the nutritional yeast flakes, it’s a cheese alternative that contains B vitamins.

Tips For Roasting Asparagus

  1. To store fresh asparagus, place them standing in a glass jar with 1-2 inches cold water in the refrigerator.
  2. Trim the woody ends of the asparagus for a tender and juicy finished asparagus.
  3. To trim the ends you can use a sharp knife or just holds both ends of asparagus and bend to snap. It will break in just the right place.

    I love asparagus, but my kids don’t really like it so I hardly ever buy it, but I’m adding it to my menu this week now. This looks delicious.

    I have never been a fan of asparagus. I have tried it before and felt like I was eating grass. I know my grandmother would love this recipe though.
