Greek Style Asparagus with Egg and Lemon Sauce (Sparangia Avgolemono) Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 bunch of asparagus, ends trimmed
  • Greek olive oil, for drizzling
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 1 recipe avgolemono, prepared with vegetable broth
  • 3 tablespoons fresh, chopped parsley

Directions to Prepare Asparagus With Egg and Lemon Sauce:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Brush a 9 x 13 pan with olive oil or spray with cooking spray.

Place the asparagus in a single layer in the baking dish. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast in the oven until done to your liking. For best results, you should keep them slightly crunchy. If you do, it should take about twenty minutes for them to cook.

Prepare the avgolemono while the asparagus are in the oven. Remove the baking dish from the oven. Ladle the avgolemono over the asparagus and sprinkle with parsley just before serving.
