I love asparagus in the spring!  Asparagus is a healthy side vegetable rich in calcium, folate, fiber, vitamin C and vitamin K.  Here, a simple roasted version with balsamic vinegar.
 
INGREDIENTS
1 pound asparagus, washed with ends cut off
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
sea salt, to taste
 
DIRECTIONS
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.  Line up asparagus and coat with olive oil and vinegar.  Sprinkle with sea salt.
Bake 10-15 minutes, or until tender.

Enjoy!
