My mom got this recipe from someone at the greenhouse. Definitely my favorite way to eat asparagus so far!
40 asparagus spears (about 2 lbs.)
salt and pepper
2 TBSP. butter
2 tsp. low sodium soy sauce
1 tsp. balsamic vinegar
Preheat oven to 400. Arrange asparagus in a single layer on a baking sheet (line with foil) and coat with cooking spray. Salt and pepper. Bake at 400 for 12 minutes, or until tender.
Melt and brown butter (on High heat; move butter at all times). Stir in soy sauce and vinegar. Drizzle over asparagus. Toss well to coat. Yields 8 servings.
