EASY SAUTEED GARLIC ASPARAGUS — This simple side dish features asparagus sauteed in butter and garlic, with a pinch of salt and pepper.
I love quick and easy vegetable dishes. And veggies don’t get any quicker, or easier, than this Easy Sauteed Garlic Asparagus.
And of course asparagus is always appropriate for your Easter menu!
Don’t forget to snap of the bottom of the asparagus before you cook it. Just bend the stalk where the color starts to change from white to green.
For a slightly healthier version, I sometimes prepare this with olive oil instead of butter. If you like more tender asparagus, lower the heat and cook for an additional 5-10 minutes.
I prefer my asparagus on the crisp side, but to each is own. Either way, it’s delicious, healthy and easy to prepare!
