One of the most delicious vegetables out there—a gateway vegetable, you could call it, for those who don’t naturally love veggies—is asparagus. Cooked right, it can be one of the tastiest sides you could ever eat. This recipe is pretty much guaranteed to make you, and picky kids who don’t usually eat their vegetables, clean your plate. Plus it’s healthy, low-carb, and keto-friendly.


  • Asparagus
  • Olive oil
  • Minced garlic
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Mozzarella cheese


Preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Snap the woody ends off of your asparagus stalks. Throw out the ends and wash the asparagus that remains.

Mix olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Toss the asparagus in the flavored oil mixture. Spread it out on a lightly greased baking sheet and cook for ten to 15 minutes until the asparagus is bright green.

Remove from the oven and cover in a layer of mozzarella cheese. Return to the oven and broil for an additional five minutes until the cheese is melted, golden, and bubbly. Remove from the oven. Season with more salt and pepper to taste. Let it cool down just a bit, serve, and enjoy!
