Completely Keto Broiled Asparagus

In a cozy kitchen bathed in the gentle light of early spring, Eva, a culinary enthusiast with a flair for keto cooking, sought to create a dish that captured the essence of the season while adhering to her dietary preferences.

Her garden, a labor of love, had just yielded its first harvest of asparagus, tender and vibrant. With these fresh spears in hand, Eva envisioned a simple yet elegant dish that would highlight the vegetable’s natural flavors.

Drizzling the asparagus with olive oil, she added minced garlic for a punch of flavor, and seasoned it with black pepper and sea salt to enhance its earthy notes. A quick broil transformed the spears into a succulent treat, charred to perfection. Just before serving, a squeeze of lemon added a bright, citrusy finish, elevating the dish to a new level of delight.

This Completely Keto Broiled Asparagus became a celebration of spring’s bounty, embodying Eva’s joy in sharing healthy, flavorful meals with her loved ones.
