Roasted Asparagus with Bitter Lemon Pesto (AIP & WahlsPaleo+)

asparagus & lemon pestoAn elegant grown-up breakfast!

Serve with strawberry shortcake fudge, a Victorious Offal Muffin & spinach wilted in bone broth. Gorgeous!

I adapted the Roasted Asparagus from Simple and Merry  to make it thoroughly AIP & WahlsPaleo+ friendly.

I adapted the Bitter Lemon Pesto from my own recipe for Avocado Pesto, because the roasted asparagus was just begging for it.

Roasted Asparagusroasted

  • 1 lb asparagus
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • 1-2 cloves garlic
  • 1 teaspoon Himalayan salt

Preheat oven to 350

Snap the ends off the asparagus spears & lay on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

Melt the coconut oil & pour over the asparagus. Use your hands to ensure the spears are well-coated.

Using a garlic press, squeeze a clove or two of garlic & sprinkle garlic bits onto the asparagus.

Finish with a sprinkle of salt.

Bake 20 minutes for slender asparagus; 25 minutes for thicker stalks.
