Simple Asparagus

Asparagus (as many as you need to feed the fam)
Grape Seed Oil
Sea Salt
Garlic Powder
Shredded Parmesan Cheese

Wash your asparagus, trim off the bottoms, and if you have an extra minute, use your peeler to peel the last inch of the asparagus so that it stays tender. After they are prepped, drizzle grape seed oil over them (I put them in a bowl or shallow dish, and roll them around so they all get a light coat of olive oil) then lay them flat on a roasting pan and sprinkle the sea salt, pepper, and garlic powder to your liking and pop them in the oven for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, test them with a fork, if they are close to your liking for tenderness, sprinkle on a handful of shredded parmesan cheese, put them back in the oven for 3-5 minutes to let the cheese melt. Delicious!

Options to serve with:
They are a great compliment to any meal as the veggie dish, I personally like them along side of the sweet potato fries!
