Asparagus With Brown Butter

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 3 mins

Letting the butter brown a little adds a great taste to this butter sauce. It's perfect for asparagus, and I use it for broccoli too.


  1. Have the asparagus steamed and drained.
  2. Melt butter in saucepan.
  3. Let it cook until it turns a light brown.
  4. Add lemon juice.
  5. Pour over the steamed asparagus.
  6. Sprinkle with the parsley.

I haven't tried this exact version, but I do a similar one, but add loads of grated nutmeg to it. It works well with the brown butter.
