    Asparagus is an excellent source of nutrients that can help to fight inflammation.


    1 pound asparagus, trimmed
    1 tablespoon canola oil
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
    1/2 cup balsamic vinegar


    1. Adjust oven rack at least 6 inches from broiler element and heat broiler to high. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Set aside.

    3. Broil for 7 to 10 minutes or until tender and charred, stirring halfway through cooking.
