Broiled Asparagus...


...is really, really good. It doesn't sound good, and that picture doesn't really convey the deliciousness very well... but trust me on this.

Just olive oil, salt, and pepper. Broil for 4-5 minutes and then roll them around a bit to get the other side, and then broil for another 4-5 minutes until they are just getting brown. If you have a wide variety of diameters of asparagus(fairly common) then you might have to watch the skinny ones so they don't burn up... super thick asparagus(greater than 5/8" diameter is what Cook's said) is probably a no-go, as it won't be tender by the time the outside is a blackened mess. There is really nothing to it, and it's something you can make as you cook your main meal on the stovetop.
