Asparagus is a spring vegetable with lots of health benefits. It is a rich source of folate, antioxidants, B-complex vitamins, vitamin K, copper, iron, and it provides some dietary fiber, and much more.

Directions:

Preheat oven to 450° F. Place asparagus in a 2-quart baking dish. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Drizzle with olive oil, tossing lightly to coat. Roast, uncovered, about 15 minutes or until crisp-tender, lightly tossing twice during roasting. Transfer asparagus to a warm serving platter.
