Garlic and Balsamic Vinegar Asparagus

If fresh thin asparagus spears are not available, you can substitute with larger spears; but first blanch for one minute, give an ice bath, pat dry and then proceed to saute.



  • 3 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 large bunch fresh thin asparagus spears, tough ends removed
  • 1 Tbsp. minced garlic
  • 1 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • Fresh grated Parmesan cheese for garnish


Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the asparagus, garlic, and vinegar and saute until asparagus is tender, about 3 to 6 minutes, depending on whether you like your asparagus crisp or on the softer side. Sprinkle with Parmesan and serve.

Thank you this is wonderful! I am vegan and will use my own parmesan cheese for this. Will make this for dinner tonight. :)
