Finish & Serve: Drizzle the lemon juice over the asparagus and serve.
- As vegetables cook, they tend to release moisture, therefore when placed too close together, they can become soggy! To keep your roasted asparagus brown and crisp, they need some space to breathe!
- Refrigerate leftover roasted asparagus in a shallow, airtight container or resealable plastic bags. Properly stored, your roasted asparagus will last for 3-5 days in the fridge!
- You can reheat leftovers in the microwave or you can preheat your oven to 400°F and spread the asparagus out on a baking sheet. Toss them with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and bake until heated through.
