Roasted asparagus and mushrooms are deliciously paired. Parmesan adds just enough cheesiness to bring the dish together. It's hard to resist this tasty dish that brings the smell of spring.













Low Cholesterol, Trans-fat Free, Good source of fiber, Low Carb


3 tablespoons olive oil
4 cloves garlic
finely chopped
1 teaspoon thyme
fresh, or 1/2 teaspoon dried
salt and black pepper
to taste
1 pound asparagus
ends trimmed and washed
12 ounces mushrooms
button or cremini, halved, or quartered if too big,
1 tablespoon lemon juice
cup Parmesan cheese
or shaved


Preheat the oven to 450℉ (230℃).

In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, garlic, thyme, salt and black pepper to taste.

Place the asparagus on a large baking sheet, drizzle 1 1 /2 tablespoons of garlic-oli mixture over the asparagus.

Toss to evenly coat. Arrange the asparagus to a single layer.

In a medium bowl, toss the mushrooms with remaining garlic-oil mixture until evenly coated.

Spread the mushrooms on top of the asparagus.

Bake in the preheated oven for about 12 minutes.

Remove from the oven and drizzle the lemon juice over the vegetables.

Continue to bake for another 4 minutes or so until mushrooms start to shrivel slightly, and asparagus are fork tender.

Remove from the oven and let cool for a couple of minutes.

Transfer to a serving platter.

Season with more salt and black pepper if needed.

Serve warm.

What do you do with the cheese?

As written this is by no means a "low fat" option when 66% of the calories in the dish come from fat. But if you skip the parm and cut the oil in half it's not too bad.
