Sesame Parmesan Roasted Asparagus

Sesame Parmesan Roasted Asparagus

There are plenty of ways to enjoy asparagus, especially now that warm weather is arriving, but I need to strongly recommend that you give Sesame Parmesan Roasted Asparagus a try.

Or, as I like to call it, Sesaparms ‘spargus. Go on say it. It’s fun!

Vegan Sesame Parmesan Roasted Asparagus

I made this the same night I gorged on Somer’s Vegan Orange Sesame Seitan and they went together perfectly. I feel like asparagus is the quintessential spring/summer vegetable and would go perfectly with anything, really. Grill it, roast it, steam it, boil it… you can’t go wrong!

Sesame Parmesan Roasted Asparagus


  • One bunch fresh asparagus
  • Olive oil for drizzling
  • S&P
  • Sesame seeds
  • Nutritional yeast


  1. Wash your asparagus, then chop off the woody ends at the natural breaking point (you know, where it snaps when you bend it)
  2. Arrange on a baking sheet covered in aluminum foil and drizzle with just a bit of olive oil
  3. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste, then place under the broiler (on low) for 6-8 minutes, turning once. Keep an eye on it! Don’t let it burn!
  4. Plate the ‘gus and sprinkle liberally with sesame seeds and nutritional yeast, and serve while still warm.

    I absolutely agree that asparagus is the perfect spring/summer veg. I love this simple recipe…might have to make it as a side to some Gardein beefless tips!
