A lovely, more healthy way to eat asparagus than I usually make (no, I'm not tellin'!), this went VERY well chopped and mixed in with some freekeh, a roasted young green wheat cereal/grain. (Besides, who could resist repeatedly saying, "FREEKeh! FREEKeh!" I mean, really.) I used a Ziplock Zip'n Steam bag to steam (in the microwave) 1 bunch of asparagus at 1.5 minutes (800 watt) and it came out crisp and delicious. I also reduced the lemon/wine mixture to thicken the sauce slightly. Yum! Thanks, Bergy!

This recipe was absolutely incredible! We served this at our Christmas table and it was devoured. The only thing I did differently was roast the asparagus rather than steam (a personal preference). I think this lemon sauce would dress green beans beautifully, as well. Thanks for the recipe. This one stays in our family arsenal!

Bergy another great and easy recipe that DH an DS loved. I steamed my asparagus in the microwave. Since I didn't have a shallot I substituted with green onions. The lemon and wined gave such great flavor to the asparagus. I topped them with some lemon zest (hate to waste anything lololol).

Yummy! I didn't have a shallot so I used 1/4 cup onion and didn't have garlic cloves so I used garlic powder. It was wonderful! Thank you for sharing!

You definitely have a 5 Star winner here. I made these the other night with some grilled chicken. It was so nice outside, I had to get the grill out. This was a wonderful tasty treat for us and it went great with the grilled chicken. This is a keeper for us. Since I work in the city and don't get home until after 7:00pm, dinner has to be quick. It took no time at all for our dinner to come together. Thanks for posting. Melody

Yummy, yummy, yummy... I usually cannot stand asparagus no matter how they are cooked, but these were so good!! We made it with a main dish that called for a lot of the same ingredients and it was a perfect match. I can't wait to make them again!
