These garlic and ‘Parmesan’-crusted asparagus spears make a tasty side dish, snack, or party appetizer. Easy and elegant!

From Naked Food Magazine.

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch of asparagus (about 12 spears)
  • 2 tablespoons hemp seeds
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder or 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground pepper
  • Pinch of paprika
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat breadcrumbs
  • Juice of ½ lemon

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Wash the asparagus. To remove the white bottom end, hold each asparagus spear with both hands and bend it near the white end. The white end will snap off.
  3. Transfer hemp seeds to a small bowl and mix in the nutritional yeast, garlic, pepper, paprika, and breadcrumbs.  Stir and set aside.
  4. Arrange the asparagus spears side by side in a baking dish and sprinkle with the hemp mixture.
  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until asparagus are crispy.
  6. Serve and sprinkle with some lemon juice.

The nutrition experts with whom we consult generally say that a whole-food plant-based diet with total calories not exceeding 15% from fat is optimal for health, so oil is not used in any of our recipes.

The breadcrumbs are used in step 3, mixed with other ingredients, and then that mixture is added to the asparagus in Step 4.

We’ve made this recipe numerous times and LOVE it. Don’t forget to drizzle the lemon juice on top because it really adds to it.
