Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 25 mins
Total Time 35 mins


For the breadcrumbs:

  • 1/2 cup Almond Flour (use Cassava Flour or Tigernut Flour for AIP)
  • 1 tbs Arrowroot Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Dried Thyme
  • 1/8 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/8 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1 tbs Chicken Stock (or water)
  • 1/2 tsp Olive Oil

For the Asparagus

  • 1-2 lb Asparagus
  • 2 tbs Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp Lemon Zest (approx half a lemon)


  • Preheat the oven to 325 F.
  • Mix together all of the ingredients for the breadcrumbs, place on a baking sheet, and bake for 15 minutes.
  • While the breadcrumbs are cooling, adjust the oven temp to 450 F.
  • Trim the tough ends off of the asparagus, place on a baking sheet, and drizzle with olive oil. Toss to coat.
  • Roast for 7 minutes.
  • Towards the end of the 7 minutes, crumble the breadcrumbs (which should have cooled enough by now to touch) with your hands into small crumbs.
  • Remove from the asparagus from the oven, stir, and then sprinkle the breadcrumbs over it. Put back in the oven for another 2-3 minutes (depending on the thickness of your asparagus).
  • Remove from the oven again and sprinkle the lemon zest over the asparagus.
  • Serve immediately.
