We are not a huge fan of asparagus BUT I really do believe that every ingredient does have a great recipe out there somewhere for everybody to like. So I played around with this and came up with a simple recipe that brings out the flavor of asparagus. So try it and see if you like it.
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup sliced almonds
1 teaspoon of garlic or onion powder
1 pound asparagus spears-cleaned and snapped
First steam the asparagus until crisp tender-3-5 min.
Melt butter in a large skillet. Add almonds and garlic powder. Cook over low heat until almonds are toasted; push to one side.
Spoon almond butter over the warm asparagus and serve immediately.
