Asparagus recipes, anyone?!

Question: Asparagus recipes, anyone?
I made a killer batch of asparagus tonight and wanted to share, as well as hear any good recipes you all might have for this delightful veg which makes your pee smell ;) Found it on and it got 4 1/2 stars from 1,000+ reviewers. Had to be good, right?

Preheat oven to 400F
Evenly spread out layer of asparagus, brush with butter, salt & pepper
Roast for ~12-15 min until fork tender
Melt 2 Tbsp butter in microwave
Add 1 tsp soy sauce & 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
Mix, drizzle over asparagus

Friggin' awesome.

PS: Did you know that only half of people actually develop that funky smell in their urine after eating asparagus? And that there is also only a small segment of the population who cannot even smell the odor? Two separate genes are required to both break down the sulphuric compounds AND be able to smell it.


Sounds yummy. I prefer having asparagus raw with balsamic vinegar and sea salt, but I cook it occasionally. Definitely saving this recipe. Here's one you might also like.
