Spring is just around the corner, and you know what that means. Fresh asparagus! Asparagus is an excellent source of vitamin K, folate, vitamin C and vitamin A. It can be prepared many ways and enjoyed hot or cold. My favorite way is also the simplest.
-1 lb. bunch asparagus
-1 Tbsp. olive oil
-1/2 tsp. sea salt
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Wash asparagus and trim off tough ends. The easiest way to do this is to bend the asparagus until it breaks. Break one, then trim the rest to match that size. Toss asparagus with olive oil and lay out on a baking sheet in a single layer. Sprinkle with sea salt and roast for 15 minutes. Serve immediately.
