Broiled Balsamic Asparagus

Asparagus doesn't need much-it's delicious in its simplicity. But here's one of my favorite ways to dress it up just a little. It's so easy and is ready to go in less than 10 minutes! 

I love watching the asparagus turn a brilliant shade of green before tossing it in this simple sauce. The soy sauce component intensifies the balsamic to give it a bit of an edge.

Broiled Balsamic Asparagus

  • 1 lb asparagus
  • 1 T balsamic vinegar
  • 1 T soy sauce
  • 1 T olive oil
  • Pinch of salt and pepper

Preheat broiler. Cut or snap woody ends off of asparagus. I usually bunch up the entire pound together and slice off a little less than an inch in one fell swoop.

Lay asparagus on a pan (lined with aluminum foil to minimize the mess). Sprinkle with a pinch of salt and pepper. Broil for 5-6 minutes while prepping the sauce.

In a small bowl, combine vinegar, soy sauce, and olive oil. Remove asparagus from the oven and toss or brush with dressing. Serve!
