Not everyone likes Asparagus, but I sure do!  It’s tasty and it’s also super healthy for you! If you are looking for a yummy and easy asparagus recipe to try, I’ve got what you are looking for – Garlic Lemon Butter Asparagus!

By the way, asparagus is super healthy for you! Just one cup of cooked asparagus has 40 calories, 4 grams of protein, 4 grams of fiber and 404 milligrams of potassium. That’s awesome because potassium is good for blood pressure. Asparagus is a nutrient-packed vegetable. It is a very good source of fiber, folate, vitamins A, C, E and K!

Ingredients

  • 1 lb asparagus
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • Salt, as desired

Directions

Trim off the hard stem areas of the asparagus.  This is usually the bottom 1-2 inches of the asparagus.  I line them up on a cutting board and cut off tough bottom parts.

Heat butter in a large skillet over medium high heat.

After the butter is heated, add asparagus and saute for about 3 minutes or until almost tender.

Add garlic and saute for a minute.

Add lemon juice and salt.

Stir to mix well, and then remove from heat.
