Roasted Asparagus

Note: Serves 4-6 . Total Carbohydrates: 41, Carbohydrates per Serving: 10.30 Don't expect this asparagus to be green and crunchy. It will be browned, soft and sweetly delicious. It needs nothing more than a sprinkling of coarse-grained salt.

2 lbs. thick asparagus
1 Tbsp. olive oil
coarse salt
lemon wedges

Preheat the oven to 450ºF (227ºC). Snap or cut off the fibrous ends of the asparagus and discard. Place the asparagus in a bowl and toss with the olive oil. Spread it out in a single layer onto a thick, rimmed baking sheet. Roast the asparagus, shaking the pan occasionally, until tender and browned, about 10-15 minutes. Sprinkle with the salt. Transfer to a heated platter and garnish with the lemon wedges.
