Steamed Asparagus Recipe

About Asparagus

Why’s this skinny green veggie so good for you? There are a few reasons…

  • Dietary fiber
  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin B folate
  • Low in fat
  • Low in sodium
  • No cholesterol

Cooking Tips Asparagus steams quickly and keeps its bright-green color. Steaming is one of the best preparations for veggies. It enhances the natural fresh flavors and is also a very healthy way to cook, since it doesn't require the addition of any butter, oil or salt. Almost any pan with a lid can be turned into a steamer. All you need is a collapsible steamer basket.


Equipment

  • Cutting knife
  • Cutting board
  • Measuring cups
  • Pan with lid
  • Collapsible steamer basket

Ingredients

  • 1 pound asparagus, stems trimmed
  • 1 cup water

Directions

Place water in steamer (just enough, so the bottom of the steamer basket will not touch the water), and arrange asparagus spears in the steamer basket. Place the basket in the pan and cover. When water comes to a rapid boil, add the asparagus and cook to desired tenderness. (Most average thickness asparagus will take 7 minutes, but thicker stalks take more time and pencil thin ones take only a few minutes.) Add salt and pepper and serve immediately. You may add a little butter if you wish.

Dear Dish-It In The Forums

XxRuby_PhoenixxX
Thank you. I don't think it's puberty, though; there are reasons for this depression that I know of, but it won't be that simple to treat. One, my crush probably doesn't like me back, most definitely, my mom is screaming more often, and I have a lot of stress.

Sure you may be going through something but see first how positive your life really is, then see the negative.

If a boy/girl has the nerve to break up with you don't feel bad. Know they're missing out on an amazing person.
