      This is absolutely delicious and definitely worthy of company and for holiday family dinners. We used low sodium chicken broth and would next time add a tad of salt to bring out the flavours more and perhaps add a dash of lemon juice as well. But really - these are very minor recommendations - the dish is fantastic just the way it is. We used raw whole almonds and did not blanch them which added a tad more almond flavour as well. It is one of the recipes that somehow are more than the sum of their parts.

      This past week I have been on an asparagus kick it seems, and this is one of my favortie asparagus recipes so far. I used low sodium broth and scaled it down to serve two. The sauce is lovely, and much more healthy than the regular cream sauce too! I plan on trying this with other veggies soon.
