Wonderful! DH has always wants his asparagus steamed with a dollop of Miracle Whip on top. I'd done half a bunch that way just a few days earlier; and needing to use the rest as a side to chicken stroganoff on noodles i just couldn't deal with doing it that way again (aesthetically or nutritionally). The response to this "new" thing? "This is good. This is really good". So now we have a second way to treat asparagus.
We were asked to bring a healthy vegetable dish to a cancer support group meeting. This was a beautiful dish to share and was delicious as well. It was hit with the group.
We are not big asparagus fans in my home, but I decided we need to broaden our horizons, so we tried this. I think if you like asparagus, you will like the recipe. The sauce was nice (I used pecans).
the vinegar taste was a bit overpowering. i liked the nuts in it. i made it with " i stole the recipe from mirj" sesame noodles.
Elegant and excellent, as stated. Didn't and won't change a thing. I plunged the cooked (2 minutes) asparagus into an ice water bath so that it would retain its bright green color. I wasn't sure what "crushed" walnuts were so I "crushed" some lightly with a mallet. It seemed fine done that way. Truly beautiful and delicious.
