Quick Sauteed Asparagus - Hcg Friendly

READY IN: 9mins
Recipe by Mommy Diva

A quick, flavorful recipe I came up with that fits into the Dr. Simeons Hcg Protocol during VLCD phase. Add spices to taste. **Trimming the Asparagus: Just hold each end and snapping it -- it will naturally break off the tough part. You keep the flower end for cooking (and should have nice longer spears). If you like, the "tough" ends can be kept to be used in vegetable stock or for other used later. Saw this on Cook Yourself thin!

I'm enjoying this asparagus right now! I didn't have red pepper flakes so used a few dashes of Frank's hot sauce. I also used white asparagus. A little spicy and very good, thank you!
