    Units: US | Metric

    Marinade

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Before peeling asparagus, start on the marinade. In a heavy saucepan, cook onions slowly in the olive oil with garlic, zest, herbs, and bay leaf. When tender (about 10 minutes), add peppercorns, wine, lemon juice, water, and salt. Cover and simmer slowly for about 20 minutes.
    2. 2
      Peel asparagus. Lay in a flameproof casserole dish and pour marinade over so asparagus is just covered with liquid (more water may be added if needed). Bring to a boil, cover, and simmer slowly for 20 minutes, or until asparagus is tender. Take out asparagus and arrange on serving platter. Boil down the cooking liquid until lightly syrupy and spoon over the asparagus. Sprinkle with parsley.

      I like this dish a lot. It tasted very "French". Of course it's Julia, I should have guessed! I also only simmered my asparagus for about 10 minutes. Served with Porcini-Crusted Tofu with Shallot Gravy and Celeriac Mash . Delish. Thank you! [Made for Best of 2011 Tag game]

      Can't go wrong with Julia! :) Real flavorful and easy to do. My spears were smaller so I cut cooking time to 10 minutes. The boiled down marinade is a nice sauce for this. Made for Fall 2011 PAC game.
