Easy Roasted Asparagus is so simple to make and cooks up perfectly tender and crisp every time. 1 pan, 4 ingredients, and 12 minutes are all you need for this great springtime or summer side dish. Vegan, oil-free, and gluten-free.




  1. Preheat the oven to 425˚F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
  2. Trim the asparagus and arrange it in a single layer on the baking sheet.
  3. Coat the asparagus with the veggie broth then sprinkle with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Use your hands to lightly toss the pieces until they are evenly coated. Use more broth and seasonings as necessary.
  4. Bake for 10-12 minutes until the asparagus is slightly brown and can be pierced with a fork. Cooking time will depend on the thickness of the asparagus. 
  5. Serve and enjoy! Store any leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days in an airtight container. 


Store any leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days in an airtight container. You can eat it at room temperature, right out of the fridge, warm it up in a nonstick skillet on the stove, or pop it in the microwave for a few seconds.

This is not freezer-friendly. Frozen asparagus can get very mushy so I would not recommend this option.

Cooking time can vary depending on oven temperature and the size of the asparagus. The sweet spot I’ve found for roasting is 425˚F for 10-12 minutes.
