  • 1 lb asparagus, ends trimmed & washed
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil or avocado oil
  • 12 garlic cloves, crushed
  • Scant 1/4 tsp salt
  • Ground black pepper, to taste


  1. In a medium-large rectangular baking dish place asparagus. Drizzle with oil, top with garlic and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place lid on top (if dish has one) or wrap with foil or plastic wrap and holding by the ends shake and toss dish until asparagus is coated evenly with seasonings. Takes a minute or so.
  2. Turn broiler on High. Remove lid (foil or plastic) from the dish and place it 5-6 inches below the broiler. Broil for 7 minutes (I have gas) or start checking after 5 minutes. Asparagus is cooked when al dente, crunchy but softer. Just taste test one. Serve with fish, chicken, pork etc.
