Trim the ends off of the asparagus and set aside. Stir zest, olive oil, salt and pepper together in a bowl, add asparagus, and toss together.

Arrange asparagus on a lined baking sheet and sprinkle with nutritional yeast.

Roast the asparagus on the middle oven rack for 20 minutes.

Squirt the lemon juice over the asparagus and serve.
