Vegan Veggie Delight: Warm Asparagus Spears with Pine Nuts

Vegan Veggie Delight: Warm Asparagus Spears with Pine Nuts

When I was growing up, the only asparagus I ever remember eating came  from a can.

Those soft, soggy, pale green spears were clearly not one of  my favorite foods, but I was

usually chided to “eat your vegetables” so I valiantly struggled to swallow them down somehow,

thanks to significant effort and courage on my part.

Let’s face it, they tasted awful.

Fast forward to modern times.

Today fresh, organic, raw or steamed asparagus spears are often found on my plate.

Of course, these taste divine because they are nothing like those mushy, canned spears of

memory.

Tender, but not overcooked asparagus, is often a fine art.

In this easy but flavorful recipe for asparagus we simply steam the asparagus lightly

before sautéing them with red wine vinegar.

The final touch is chopped pine nuts sprinkled on top.

Just a little goes a long way.

In this easy but flavorful recipe for asparagus we simply steam the asparagus lightly before sautéing it with red wine vinegar.

Directions:

Cut the ends of the asparagus stems and steam the spears for about 3 minutes.

Once the asparagus has steamed, over medium heat, heat the olive oil.

Add the red wine vinegar and asparagus and sauté for about 2 minutes.

When the asparagus starts to brown slightly it’s ready.

Season it with sea salt and pepper and topped with chopped nuts.
