Steamed Asparagus With Almond Butter

Steamed Asparagus With Almond Butter created by AmandaInOz

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.
