Oil-Free Roasted Asparagus

Oil-Free Roasted Asparagus

1 bunch asparagus (about 1 pound), tough ends snapped off
Juice of 1/2 orange or 3 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
Freshly ground pepper
2 Tbsp. chopped mixed herbs such as parsley, thyme and mint

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a large rimmed baking sheet
with unbleached parchment paper or use a shallow baking dish.

Arrange spears on baking sheet. Squeeze orange or drizzle
vinegar over asparagus, toss to coat and season with pepper.
Roast, shaking the pan occasionally, until just tender,
about 8-10 minutes. Watch carefully to avoid overcooking!
Transfer to a platter, scatter herbs over the top, and serve.

Makes 4 servings.
