    Rather than boiling asparagus, steam it for maximum flavour and tenderness. Try using vinaigrette dressing in place of the butter too.

    Serves: 4 

    • 1 bunch asparagus spears
    • 1 teaspoon butter
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 3 cups (750ml) water

    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Place water in the bottom half of a steamer pan set. Add salt and butter, and bring to a boil.
    2. Trim the dry ends off of the asparagus. If the spears are thick, peel them lightly with a vegetable peeler. Place them in the top half of the steamer pan set. Steam for 5 to 10 minutes depending on the thickness of the asparagus, or until asparagus is tender.


    If you do not have a steamer pan set, you can use a steamer basket inserted into a large pot.
