Wednesday Wellness - Roasted Asparagus

1 bunch of asparagus
1 Tbsp. olive oil
sea salt

1. First, start by breaking the cut ends off of each stalk of asparagus. I hold one end in each hand an bend the asparagus until the it breaks in two. 
2. Arrange the freshly snapped asparagus in a baking dish and drizzle with olive oil. Toss the stalk so that each one is coated with oil.
3. Now sprinkle on the salt and any additional herbs or spices that you would like. You can also drizzle lemon juice or balsamic vinegar on after they’re done.
4. Pop the baking dish into the oven and turn your broiler on. The asparagus will need to broil for 8 to 10 minutes depending on how thick they are. When they are done, the stalks will be lightly browned and tender when tested with a fork (or teeth!).
