Homemade Roasted Garlic Aioli

This crispy garlic parmesan asparagus is absolutely amazing on its own, but the final touch on this dish is the Homemade Garlic Aioli! It’s sooo creamy and adds an extra layer of garlic flavor…because you can never have enough, right? 

I like to roast garlic in the oven before mixing it up and making the aioli, and that little extra step has made all the difference in my opinion. It’s SO good. Not just for this dish, but for any dipping needs you may have!

How to Make Roasted Garlic Asparagus

You only need about 30 minutes to make this crispy garlic asparagus, and most of that time is totally hands off. Prep it, throw it in the oven, and let it do its thing!

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F, and prepare a baking sheet by covering it with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
  2. Place the olive oil, minced garlic, Parmesan cheese, salt & pepper, and panko breadcrumbs in a resealable bag, and shake it all together to mix.
  3. Now place the asparagus in the bag with the rest of the ingredients, and massage it to coat the asparagus.
  4. Next, spread the asparagus spears out on the baking sheet so that they’re not touching.
  5. Bake 15-20 minutes at 400°F, until asparagus becomes tender, and breadcrumbs turn golden brown.
  6. When it’s done baking, top the asparagus with the aioli to serve!
