Asparagus

Makes tender and tasty asparagus! You can eat it with as a side dish or an appetizer. In the photo, I had it with Turkish meatballs, and mashed potato.

1 bunch asparagus
1 tablespoon olive oil
2-3 garlic cloves, sliced
Salt, pepper

  • Trim the dry ends off of the asparagus. If the spears are thick, peel them lightly with a vegetable peeler. Place them in the top half of the steamer pan set. Steam for 5 to 10 minutes depending on the thickness of the asparagus, or until asparagus is tender.
  • In a pan, heat the olive oil and sliced garlic. Add steamed asparagus to the mixture, toss and make sure they are all combined.
