I don't use the term "world's easiest" lightly, but this method of cooking asparagus is literally the best!
Clean and trim the asparagus spears. Just use a vegetable peeler on the ends then snap them where they naturally bend.
Lay the spears in a long baking dish and pour boiling water over them. Leave until the water is tepid then drain. They will be perfectly tender, crisp! How easy is that?
Use as is, in your favourite recipe or toss in this vinaigrette and serve chilled or at room temperature.
1 lb asparagus spears
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsps lemon juice
fresh ground black pepper and himalayan salt to taste
1/4 cup olive oil
I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!
