Here's a healthy way to cook asparagus.

1 bunch asparagus
1/2  - 1 tsp olive oil
2 pinches coarse sea salt (sometimes referred to as rock salt)
1 - 3 cloves garlic finely sliced

Take a nice firm bunch of asparagus.
Break or cut off the woody bottoms.
Wash and pat dry.
Toss in 1/2 - 1 tsp of olive oil.
Spread on a cookie sheet, or if it is barbeque season, put it on a sheet you can put on the grill
Spread the sliced garlic over the asparagus
Sprinkle on the coarse salt (don't overdo it)

Bake in oven at 350 F for about 10 - 15 minutes until tender, but not overcooked.

This particular recipe is great for someone looking for a great high alkaline recipe. It is also great if you're counting weight watcher points! And it is YUMMY. We've also cooked our sweet potatoes this way, sliced very thinly, which by the way, are also low alkaline and yummy.
