Roasted White Asparagus (Firinda Beyaz Kuskonmaz)

1 lb white asparagus, trimmed
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
½ tsp paprika
½ tsp salt to taste
½ tsp dried thyme
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice (optional)

Steam asparagus spears in 1 cup salty boiling water until they are soft (5 minutes in microwave). Then, rinse under cold water and drain. Preferably cut them in half.
Take the cooked asparagus over an oven tray layered with baking paper. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil; add paprika and thyme. Toss gently to cover them all. Roast them in the preheated 450F (230C) for about 8-10 minutes.
Take over the serving plate and drizzle with fresh lemon juice (optional).
ENJOY
