Roasted Asparagus with Garlic, Lemon & Thyme Recipe

For convenience of cleaning, line the roasting tray with aluminium foil before putting in the asparagus.


  • 20 medium to thick stalk asparagus (do not use pencil-thin types)
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 5 garlic cloves peeled & finely chopped
  • 5 garlic cloves peeled and gently bruised
  • 3 lemon slices
  • 2 sprigs of fresh thyme (for better results, dip them in hot water for 30 seconds before use)
  • 2 dried bay leaves optional
  • half lemon
  • salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste


  1. Prepare the asparagus by trimming & discarding the bottom ends and removing the outer skin on the stalks.
  2. Coat asparagus with olive oil. Season with sea salt and black pepper. Arrange asparagus spears one layer on a roasting tray.
  3. Top asparagus with garlic, lemon slices, thyme and bay leaves. Squeeze the juice of half a lemon (not too much – you want a mild citrus flavour but not sour taste).
  4. Roast the asparagus in pre-heated oven of 200°C (392°F) for about 20 minutes, or until the tips start to brown slightly.
