Asparagus

asparagus

I prefer to use fresh asparagus for this sauteed asparagus recipe but you could use frozen if you prefer.

Seasonings

For the seasoning, I am using garlic powder, Italian herb seasoning, salt, and pepper. You can play around with adding or removing seasonings if you like but this is a simple seasoning mix that will give your sauteed asparagus a lot of flavors.

Butter

I am using butter with water to cook this asparagus. The butter just helps add some extra flavor while the asparagus cooks. 

Parmesan

I am using shredded parmesan cheese to top off this sauteed asparagus. The parmesan gives it a nice flavor and adds more texture to your asparagus.

Notes:

  • The longer you cook your asparagus the softer it will get, so make sure to cook it to your preference.
  • Thicker asparagus spears will take longer to cook than thin asparagus.
  • Add some lemon flavor to your asparagus by putting some lemon juice in the water and topping it off with lemon zest and parmesan.

Do You Rinse Asparagus Before Cooking?

Yes, you want to wash your asparagus the same as you would with any produce before cooking it. You will want to rinse your asparagus with cold water before you begin preparing to cook it. Once you have rinsed it you can trim it and begin cooking.

What is the healthiest way to eat asparagus?

The easiest answer is raw or steamed with water. Asparagus will still remain a healthy option cooked or raw but don’t punish yourself by thinking that adding some seasoning will make the asparagus bad for you. Once you start using butter and oils you want to be careful and not overdue it.
