Brown Sugar Asparagus

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by BlueSapphire

I just made this recently and my fiance loved it. He normally is a much better cook than I am so it was nice to hear him raving about something I made. It's really easy too and results in a slightly sweet asparagus.

This was different, but I loved the appearance of the finished dish. It was so glossy & pretty on the plate. I think it was the brown sugar that threw me a little off flavor wise. I want to try the recipe with regular sugar & a bit of lemon zest. Thank you for sharing your recipe! Made for Spring '09 Pick A Chef.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add olive oil, water, and brown sugar to skillet pan and stir to mix
  2. Snap asparagus and add tops to skillet pan.
  3. Heat over medium heat occasionally stirring until asparagus is tender (about 15 minutes, but I like my asparagus soft so if you prefer it crisper, it will need less time).
