READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by littleturtle

Tender crisp asparagus. An easy and tasty spring treat. If you like spicy, add dried chili flakes along with the shallots.

I would make this recipe again - but the low rating is for one reason. A teaspoon of salt is WAY too much, I can testify as a salt addict that the dish tastes great with the salt in the broth alone. Save your salt for when you make popcorn!
