Asparagus You Won't Turn Down

 Until about 3 years ago, I turned my nose up at the thought of asparagus.  Now I can't get enough!  If you've never been a fan, give this recipe a try.  Now is the time to do it because it is in season and fairly well priced.

1. Rinse stems and cut off tough bottoms (usually about an inch).
 2. Place in a Ziploc bag with 2Tbs olive oil and 1Tbs Herbes de Provence and shake vigorously.  If you don't have a Savory spice shop I feel very sorry for you no worries, you can make your own seasoning.  If you click on the photo above, you can see the ingredients on the bag.

3. Place on a large cookie sheet and sprinkle with coarse sea salt.
4. Place under the broiler --or on the grill--  for 5-8min.
I'm linking up with Imparting Grace today!

I'll be trying it! So far I've been steaming it in the microwave - I love but my husband not so much. We'll see how this goes!

Thank you! I'm trying this. I've never been a big fan of asparagus, but I WANT to like it. Maybe this way I will!!

I often make asparagus in the oven with olive oil, but I've never had it with herbs like these. That looks very good!

I made this and it was wonderful! We actually have had it a few times cooked this way since your suggestion. We eat it like french fries! Thanks so much!
