Simple Garlic Asparagus

I made a super quick, easy, healthy and naturally GDSYWP-free side dish this past Thanksgiving that everyone loved! It's so super simple, they didn't believe it! I've been making it for years, but never thought to share it! It's really more of a method than a recipe, but here it is:

Simple Garlic Asparagus

1 bunch asparagus
Olive Oil, about 1 tablespoon
1-2 cloves of garlic

Take the asparagus and snap off the ends (it will naturally snap where the "woody" part ends) and lay flat onto a baking sheet.

Thinly slice the garlic, place that randomly on top of the asparagus.

Drizzle the asparagus with a bit of olive oil (drizzle with real olive oil, don't use the spray, it will burn the asparagus ... ask me how I know! ;) ).

Place under the broiler until as tender as you like (I like mine with a bit of crunch still, so it only takes around 10 minutes. If you like yours softer, it may take a bit more time).

You could also salt/pepper/spice it, but I love to taste the asparagus, olives and garlic all by themselves.

As a bonus, if you like garlic as much as I do, the garlic will also be sort of roasted and is yummy to eat, too! You can eat it straight with the asparagus (since it has been broiled too, it is pretty mild ... at least to me, it is!), or pull it out and throw it in with mashed potatoes or however else you would normally use roasted garlic!


And who knew asparagus was so good for you on top of tasting so yummy? Yeah for good yet tasty foods! :D
