    Lemony Asparagus with almonds is an easy, healthy and delicious veggie side dish. Try this with your dinner tonight!


    • 2 Bunches Asparagus Spears
    • 2 Tbsp. Butter
    • 1 Oz. Slivered Almonds
    • 1/4 Cup Lemon Juice


    1. Wash asparagus spears and trim off about 1/2″ of the end.
    2. Fill a medium sized skillet with 1″ of water.  Bring to a boil over medium high heat.  Add asparagus spears and cover. Cook for about 4 to 5 minutes until crisp tender.  I prefer thin asparagus but if you use thicker, increase the cook time to about 7 to 8 minutes.
    3. Drain asparagus and set aside.
    4. Melt butter in a medium sized skillet and add slivered almonds.  Cook and stir for about 3 minutes or until almonds are lightly browned.  Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice
    5. Place asparagus in a serving dish and pour almond and lemon juice over.  Serve warm.
    6. Serves 4 to 6
