Rosemary Steamed Asparagus

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by yogiclarebear

I threw this together when I was trying to use up some fresh rosemary. The herb really infuses into the asparagus this way. The minty flavor of the rosemary shines here, and is softened a bit if you use the chicken broth instead of the water.

A lovely way to fix steamed asparagus. The rosemary was evident in the final taste, which I liked. I had hoped for a bit of lemon flavoring but didn't find that. I may add a light sprinkling of lemon zest to the asparagus the next time I make these. And there will be a next time.
