Parmesan roasted asparagus makes the perfect low-carb side dish to go with any protein main dish.

I have a bit of an obsession with roasting vegetables. Roasting brings out the natural sugars in a veggie, plus adds that special charred flavor that, combined with Parmesan cheese, is especially tasty.

When the asparagus is done, remove it from the oven and sprinkle the Parmesan directly over it. I like to use a micro-planer for this because the light dusting of cheese melts best.

Carbs in Asparagus

Asparagus is actually one of the best vegetables for a low-carb diet because it’s very low in carbs – in fact, one of the lowest in any veggie.

There are just 1.7 net grams of carbs in 100 grams of asparagus (about 5 spears). So you can feel free to add it to any meal.

  • 1 1/2 lb fresh asparagus ends cut off

  • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese finely grated
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or baking mat.

  • Remove the baking sheet from the oven. Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese evenly on top of the asparagus. Return to the oven for 2 additional minutes. Serve while hot.
