Sauteed Asparagus

We needed a green vegetable side dish to go with some chicken I prepared earlier this week, and The Picky Apple requested asparagus.  I almost always roast asparagus with a drizzle of olive oil, but this week I decided to switch things up.  This week, I sauteed my asparagus.  This was SO easy, and I can’t believe I haven’t done this before.  It was quick and I loved it even more than roasted asparagus!

Sauteed Asparagus


  • 1 bunch of asparagus, cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • salt and pepper

Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat.  Add garlic and asparagus.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Sautee, stirring frequently, until asparagus is bright green and tender.  (Note: I cooked mine a little too long, as you can tell from the photo!)

What’s your favorite way to prepare asparagus?  What’s your favorite green vegetable?

    Asparagus is my favorite vegetable! I always use the same spices no matter if I’m grilling it or cooking it in the kitchen. I always use Lemon Pepper to season. Sometimes I add garlic powder and sometimes I cook it (inside only) with kalmata olives…yum!
