Simple and Healthy Dish -- Asparagus

How to Prep Asparagus

The way you prepare your asparagus can depend upon its size.
  • The smallest spears will only need to have their very bottoms trimmed off before cooking.
  • The bottom portions of larger asparagus spears can be chewy and woody; they will either need to be snapped off or peeled. To snap off the tough portion, simply grasp the stalk with both hands and bend the bottom portion until it breaks off. The asparagus will naturally break off at the point where the tender portion ends and the tough, stringy part begins.
  • If you want to be less wasteful, you can peel your asparagus instead. Simply lay a stalk of asparagus flat on the countertop and strip away the tough outside layer with a vegetable peeler, beginning just below the tip and working your way towards the bottom

How to cook

  • Add cooking oil
  • Add chopped garlic
  • Add asparagus
  • Add a pinch of salt, a pinch of sugar (half amount of salt's)
  • Cook a few minutes until tender
