"YUMMM!!! I made this last night, and I am going to make it AGAIN tonight! I let my dad try some, since he eats a ton of veggies. He's diabetic and gets bored with the same old tastes, and he LOVED this one for something different. He suggested cutting the stalks into bite sized pieces so they are easier to eat and will be easier to cook, too. THANK YOU for a wonderful idea!!"
"I have been making Asparagus this way for years and it is absolutely delicious this way. I like to use kosher salt for texture. Thanks for sharing a great recipe! :)"
"Very simple & tasty! Great flavor with a nice crunchy texture on the outside but a bit softer on the inside. I used more garlic, along with garlic salt and pepper. I can honestly say I've only had steamed asparagus and all I can say now is that was a lot of wasted asparagus! This was excellent. Thanks for posting!"
"This was great - dh says the asparagus turned out exactly the way he likes it - tender but crunchy - that's the way I like mine too. "
"Easy and delicious! Great preparation for asparagus, and it really brings out a wonderful flavor in the garlic too. Thanks for sharing!"
"These were so simple yet very tasty. I am sure you need to use the thin asparagus as they cook so quickly. No changes needed to this one. It was perfect."
"Loved this recipe for a different way to cook asparagus. Usually I bake them with garlic and parmesan. This is a good change-up. I used about 4 cloves of garlic and we loved it. Thanks."
"Just delicious. We're both garlic and asparagus addicts, so I added extra garlic. Thanks so much for this easy to make veggie recipe."
"Great! I let the asparagus cool to room temp, then cut it in 1 1/2 inch pieces and tossed with my salad...YUMMY!"
"Wow! So simple and so good. I ended up eating the whole thing myself. Asparagus is a negative-calorie food, meaning your body burns more calories to digest it than you intake eating it. So if you want to make it even healthier, try using chicken broth instead of oil. Great recipe!!!!"
"Does it get any easier than this? I think not! I bought some very thin asparagus stalks, and this was the perfect way to cook them quickly."
"Simple and yummy! Thanks for sharing this great recipe. Made for cookbook tag."
"Perfect! My go to recipe for asparagus."
"I just made this today and it was delicious!! It was fast, easy & so yummy. This will go into my favorites!"
"Excellent, will certainly make this again."
"This is so easy and delicious. A big hit for everyone in my family."
"One word! Delicious! I made this for Easter dinner and served it with the spiral ham. It was so good and so easy! Thanks Countrylady"
"This was so good we love asparagus and this was a new way to prepare it will never go back to just steaming it again.Thanks for a great new recipe"
"Hi CountryLady; Absolutely scrumptous. I did add some granulate garlic powder, loved the combination of flavors. This is big keeper. Thanks much. "Uncle Bill""
"This is wonderful! I used butter instead of the oil though. It gave it a better flavour. Thanks for sharing!"
