Truffled Asparagus

1 large bunch of asparagus
Sea salt
1 - 2 T Truffle oil

Heat oven to 425 degrees.  Clean and trim woody stems from asparagus.  Place on a rack that is oven safe.  Brush with truffle oil.  Roast asparagus to desired tenderness about 10 minutes.  Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle with freshly ground sea salt.

Truffle Oil is different than Olive Oil.  I was able to find mine at Safeway.  It is however quite expensive.  The kind that I was able to acquire is basically safflower oil with the essential oil from truffles added to create the lovely aromatics and the flavor.  I use it sparingly to add flavor to rice dishes as well as vegetables.
