This delicious side dish takes simple roasted asparagus to the next level!


  • 1 lb. asparagus spears, ends trimmed (or haricots verts/green beans)
  • 2 Tbsp. avocado oil
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/8 tsp. freshly ground pepper
  • 1/8 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice (optional)
  • 1/4 cup blue cheese crumbles
  • 1/4 cup pistachios, finely chopped


  1. Heat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment.
  2. Wash and dry the asparagus and snap off the woody ends of the spears, usually about the bottom one third of the spear. It should snap naturally.
  3. Coat the spears with oil and season with salt, ground black pepper and garlic powder.
  4. Cook 15-20 minutes, depending on the thickness of the spears.
  5. Drizzle a little freshly squeezed lemon juice over the asparagus when done, and top with the blue cheese and nuts before serving.


  • You can grill the asparagus instead of roasting it.
