Sauteed Asparagus


Here is something which we have come to love as an evening snack. For the final day of BM #17, here is an easy breezy healthy, green snack. I am told these taste great in Sambar as well. 

Ingredients - 


Asparagus 1 bunch
Olive oil 2 tsp
Salt as per taste
Pepper as per taste
Lemon juice 2 Tbsp



Method Of Preparation -


Wash Asparagus under cold water to remove any sand or soil residues. 


It is not necessary to peel asparagus but the fibrous base (about an inch) should be cut off before cooking.

Chop the Asparagus into 1 inch pieces and cook them in boiling water for 2-3 minutes.



Drain them and wash in cold water.

In a skillet, on a high flame, add olive oil and saute the boiled asparagus for 2 minutes.



Add Salt and Pepper, toss them and squeeze in the lemon juice.

Serve them warm as a snack or appetizer!
Preparation Time 15 min
Serves 3-4
