This Baked Asparagus is coated in a delicious crunchy toppingthat’s seasoned with parmesan cheese. It’s an easy, new way to cook this favorite, healthy vegetable!

Asparagus is one of my favorite veggies! I usually make roasted asparagus with garlic and coconut oil but I wanted to try something a little different this week and coat them with panko breadcrumbs.

FYI, Crunchy Baked Cauliflower is phenomenal too!

Crunchy Baked Asparagus Recipe (1)

I simply baked it with a little panko coating for a yummy crunch. And boy, was I in for a treat. It’s like little asparagus french fries. 🙂

If you have an air fryer, I bet they would be amazing too.

Ingredients Needed:

Asparagus – Trim about an inch or two off the ends

Panko bread crumbs – use plain or seasoned if you’d like

Flour – Use all purpose flour or gluten free flour if desired

Parmesan cheese – Grated parmesan adds a great punch of flavor!

Eggs – Beaten slightly, they act as a binder for the panko, flour and cheese

Pepper add whatever amount you love to taste

How to make this recipe

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Lightly grease a baking sheet with coconut oil or olive oil

In a zip lock bag or grocery bag, combine Panko and Parmesan cheese.

In another bag, add the flour.

Put the beaten eggs in a shallow dish.

Place the asparagus in flour bag and shake until coated. You can work in batches if you’d like.

Remove from the flour and dip into eggs

Then place the asparagus in the panko / Parmesan cheese bag and shake until coated with this mixture.

Place asparagus in a single layer onto the greased baking sheet.

Place into oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown and crisp.

ENJOY!!!
