ingredients

directions

  • Thoroughly rinse asparagus spears.
  • Place 1/8 cup of water in an 11" by 7" pyrex baking pan.
  • Break off tough stems and place spears in pan in alernating order with the larger pieces at the outside.
  • Cook for minimum amount of time, based on your cooking guide (I am lucky, my 20 year plus oven has an autocook setting that I can use to cook things like asparagus along with many other things.) When finshed splash with a small amount of fresh (not re-consituted) lemon juice.

    Very simple to make this way, and very fresh-tasting! Just the way I like it! The kids thought it came out a little tough, but that may be because I didn't cook it long enough. I cooked it for 3 minutes...The splash of lemon juice really made it fresh! I did, however, add 1 Tbsp. of butter also, and let it melt in. I'll be cooking my asparagus this way again, only next time I'll cook it longer! Thank you for this wonderful method, Joan!
