Roasted White Asparagus with Chives makes a delicious side dish to enjoy in the spring!  This makes it the perfect side dish to serve at Easter dinner, Mother’s Day, or any occasion during the spring.

What is White Asparagus? White asparagus is white instead of green since it is grown underground, which prevents the asparagus from turning green because it doesn’t undergo photosynthesis.

While the white variety is not as common in the US compared to green asparagus, it still has nutritional benefits. It is low in calories, high in fiber with 4 grams per cup, and low in carbohydrates.

It is essential to trim the ends of the fibrous asparagus. And then, you need to peel the outside of the asparagus because the exterior is a little tougher compared to green asparagus.


Next, transfer the asparagus to the baking sheet and toss with olive oil, salt, and pepper—roast in the oven for 30 minutes or until tender.


Remove from the oven and transfer to a serving plate. Squeeze fresh lemon juice over the asparagus, top with chopped chives, and serve!
