5-Minute Healthy Sautéed Asparagus

"Healthy Sauté" allows you to enjoy all of the great taste and health-promoting nutrients of asparagus while the easy Mediterranean Dressing enhances its delicate flavor.

Prep and Cook Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Press or finely chop garlic and let it sit for at least 5 minutes to enhance its health-promoting properties.
  2. Heat 3 TBS broth over medium heat in a stainless steel skillet.
  3. When broth is heatiing, snap off the woody bottom of asparagus stems, then cut the spears into 2-inch lengths. Cutting them into short pieces of equal length ensures quick, even cooking.
  4. When broth begins to steam, add asparagus. Cover and cook for 5 minutes. The outside will be tender and the inside will be crisp. Thinner spears will take about 3 minutes. "Healthy Sauté" will concentrate both the flavor and nutrition of asparagus.
  5. Transfer to a bowl. For more flavor, toss asparagus with the remaining ingredients while it is still hot. (Mediterranean Dressing does not need to be made separately.)
