Microwave Steamed Asparagus Tips

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Gadgetsmidnight

What I love about this recipe is the ease of preparation. The asparagus comes out still crisp. To make things easier I use a Tupperware microwave steamer and I have a gadget called "Misto" that you put olive oil in to mist your foods. Cooking time includes standing time.

This is good and easy to make. I didn't add the oil but just sprinkled it with season salt. We all enjoyed this.
