I love this Roasted Asparagus with Soy-Sesame Glaze, and this amazing asparagus is low-carb, Keto, gluten-free (with gluten-free soy sauce), vegan, South Beach Diet friendly, and if you sub coconut aminos for the soy sauce it can even be Paleo or Whole 30 approved!

First, a huge thank you to everyone for the kind comments some of you have left on my post about Kalyn's Kitchen turning 12 years old! The positive feedback from readers really is one of the things that makes blogging so rewarding.
Now, can we have one more idea for cooking asparagus, since I seem to be unable to pass it up when I see it in the market these days! Waaaaay back in 2007 I made Roasted Radishes with Soy Sauce and Toasted Sesame Seed, which ended up inspiring this Roasted Asparagus with Soy-Sesame Glaze. And then for 10 years the recipe hung around in the archives with a photo that was so gruesome I actually deleted it when I took these new ones.
For the updated version I kept the asparagus spears whole and just used a pastry brush to glaze them with the soy-sesame mixture for the last bit of the cooking time. Then just sprinkle some toasted sesame seeds on and you have the most amazing roasted asparagus dish you could ever want!
And this recipe is pretty much perfect for any type of diet, even Paleo or Whole 30 if you use Coconut Aminos instead of the soy sauce. And asparagus is low in calories too! I'm adding this to my collection of favorite Asparagus Recipes, and I do hope you will try it! And for those people who just can't get excited about asparagus, you might like Quick Roasted Broccoli with Soy Sauce and Sesame Seeds which has similar flavors!
