This asparagus recipe is SO simple and jam packed with flavor!

  • 2 lbs. asparagus, fresh, organic
  • 2 tbs. butter, unsalted, organic, raw or unpasteurized, grass-fed/pastured
  • 1/4 c. almond, sliced, organic, raw
  • 1 tbs. lemon juice, pure, organic
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt, unrefined and pure
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper, ground, organic

Snap off the tough ends of the asparagus. Cook asparagus in boiling salted water to cover in a large skillet for about 3 minutes (or until slightly tender). Drain.

Put asparagus in ice water to stop the cooking process. Drain.

Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add almonds and saute 2-3 minutes, until golden brown. Add asparagus, and cook 3-5 minutes. Toss with lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Serve immediately.
