It's almost my favorite time of year: Peak asparagus season when these yummy veggies are abundant and selling at low prices. ;-)


  • 1 lb Asparagus
  • 1/8 cup slivered almonds
  • 1/8 cup butter
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 Tbsp. lemon juice


Boil asparagus until tender, drain.


In the meantime, in a small skillet, saute almonds in butter until golden brown, about five minutes to seven minutes.

Remove almonds from heat, add salt, lemon juice, stir and pour over asparagus.

Serves 3 - 4
