Eat Your Veggies, Part 2

This is a tasty way to serve asparagus. My apologies that I don't have a picture of this one. I will have to make this one again and post a picture afterward.

Lemon Almond Asparagus


3 tablespoons butter
5 teaspoons lemon juice
2 pounds fresh asparagus, trimmed
1/3 cup sliced almonds, toasted
Lemon peel strips, optional


Melt butter; stir in lemon juice. In a large saucepan, bring 4 cups water to a boil. Add asparagus in batches; cook 2-4 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain and place on a serving plate. Drizzle with butter mixture; top with almonds and, if desired, lemon peel.

Yield: 8 servings. 78 calories per serving.

Recipe note: To toast nuts, bake in a shallow pan in a 350 degree F oven for 5-10 minutes or cook in a skillet over low heat until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.

Notes: Asparagus, lemon, and almonds is such a tasty flavor combination!
