    Epi Curious's Note:

    From Bon Appetit. A little fancier way to serve asparagus than just the traditional steamed or roasted method. Asparagus is steamed and topped with a lemon almond butter that is seasoned with shallots, garlic and parsley. Delish! Note that cooking time includes time required to steam the asparagus.

      Excellent, simple asparagus dish! The almonds give this dish a great texture. Another fantastic recipe from Epi Curious! Thanks! Made for PAC Fall 2008.
