  • 1 pound of asparagus
  • ¼ tablespoon of avocado oil
  • ¼ teaspoon of garlic salt

  • Trim 1-inch off the bottoms of the asparagus.
  • In a large bowl, add the asparagus and drizzle with avocado oil, sprinkle with garlic salt and black pepper, and mix together until asparagus is evenly coated.
