Everything about asparagus screams summer…the color, how light it is when you eat it and the actual name a-s-p-a-r-a-g-u-s.
This is one of my favorite ways to eat this super healthy veggie.
If I can ever avoid salt I make sure to do so and use lemons every chance I get.
The combination of the all the ingredients helps the asparagus bring out its flavor without it taking over and becoming too overwhelming.
- 1 bunch asparagus
- 4 cloves garlic
- ½ cup white wine
- 1 lemon
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
Wash the asparagus and set aside.
In a skillet add wine, minced garlic, olive oil, 1 juice of lemon, and black pepper. Add washed asparagus and cover lid of skillet. Let simmer on low for about 15-20 minutes or until the asparagus are tender. Serve immediately.
Makes 2 servings.
