Easy Sauteed Asparagus

Asparagus is a very nutritious and complete food.  It is also a great accompaniment for just about any kind of protein.  Virtually zero carbs, this high fiber food is also high in vitamins and great for your kidneys.

Serves 4

1 lb. asparagus spears

1 garlic clove, minced

1 tbsp. butter

1 tbsp. olive oil

Salt and pepper to taste


Snap the woody ends off the asparagus and reserve the spear end and rinse.  In a pan on medium high heat melt the butter and olive oil together.  Quickly sautee the minced garlic until lightly golden brown; be careful not to burn it.  Add the rinsed asparagus spears, salt and pepper to the pan turning them frequently with a spoon or pair of tongs until the spears acheive a bright green color.  You’ll have to keep a close eye on these because you don’t want them to overcook or burn.  Remove them from the pan to your serving dish.

The asparagus should still have a slightly crunchy texture in the middle.  I like to pair asparagus with seafood, chicken, pork, beef roast or steak and pasta dishes.
