This Baked Asparagus is coated in a delicious crunchy topping that’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!
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.
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 asparagus in a single layer onto the greased baking sheet.
