Garlic Asparagus

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Jann Edwards

This has become our favorite asparagus recipe. It comes from a small book titled Totally Garlic Cookbook. I use regular chicken broth and omit the salt and the grated skin of the lemon. It tastes wonderful hot or cold, but is not as garlicky as you would imagine with a head of garlic in there.
