"I prefer my asparagus grilled or roasted over boiled, so I tossed it with the oil listed and grilled it on a grill pan on the stove. I reduced the OJ, salt and zest to a glaze and then tossed the cooked spears in it."

"This is one of my favorite veggie recipes. I have served it at dinner parties and it gets raves plus it is easy. I have also steamed the veggies and then cooked the sauce and poured it over."
