"Lemony Asparagus with Almonds is an easy, healthy and delicous veggie side dish!"

Serves 6 | Prep Time 10 minutes | Cook Time 5 minutes


2 Bunches Asparagus Spears
2 Tbsp. Butter
1 Oz. Slivered Almonds
1/4 Cup Lemon Juice

Wash asparagus spears and trim off about 1/2″ of the end.

Fill a medium sized skillet with 1″ of water.  Bring to a boil over medium high heat.  Add asparagus spears and cover. Cook for about 4 to 5 minutes until crisp tender.  I prefer thin asparagus but if you use thicker, increase the cook time to about 7 to 8 minutes.

Drain asparagus and set aside.

Melt butter in a medium sized skillet and add slivered almonds.  Cook and stir for about 3 minutes or until almonds are lightly browned.  Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice.

Place asparagus in a serving dish and pour almond and lemon juice over.  Serve warm.

Serves 4 to 6
