Garlic Parmesan Asparagus

I say this all this time, but side dishes are really difficult for me, especially keto side dishes.

Not that they are hard to make, but hard to find the easy ones that also taste good. These garlic parmesan asparagus are not only gluten free, but also keto.

Asparagus can be fickle but this recipe will deliver perfectly crispy and tasty asparagus.

My most favorite way to cook asparagus is to bake it in the oven or the air fryer. There is truly nothing worse than soggy asparagus. Ok, maybe a few things, but not many!

The Best Way To Snap Asparagus

Long ago, I used to cut the large stalks off of the asparagus and then I found that when eating them, I still wouldn’t eat the entire stalk because it was still too thick.

My husband then showed me the best way to get asparagus to the optimal length and thickness. Are you ready for this simple thing that you may already know?

You will want to gather a bunch of asparagus with the thick stalks in one hand and the tops in the other. You don’t want your second hand too far up towards the thin part, but more towards the middle. Then simply snap. They will snap in the perfect spot.

Wash before or after, but don’t forget to wash them!

Is Asparagus Keto Friendly?

Asparagus is definitely a keto friendly vegetable.

A typical serving is around 5 stalks which equates to roughly 2g net carb. That is a perfectly healthy and low carb veggie!

What To Eat With Baked Asparagus?

My favorite low carb dinner to make alongside asparagus is keto blackened salmon. Salmon and asparagus just work so well together.

I also like to eat asparagus alongside some tasty broiled flank steak.

Now, you can also serve parmesan asparagus as an appetizer or a snack!

Kitchen Essentials

The 2 main things you will need to make these keto asparagus are :

Baking Sheet – A baking sheet is the easiest thing to bake the asparagus on. There have been times I’ve used a deep casserole dish, but a regular old baking sheet is best!

Silicone Brush – You don’t 100% NEED a silicone brush, but I find that it decreases the mess compared to just pouring.

Optionally you can use parchment paper to help the cleanup process after baking the asparagus.
