Introduction

Easy steamed asparagus. If you like your asparagus crunchy, decrease the cooking time and water.
Don't like lemon? Tabasco sauce adds a spicy kick!

Ingredients

    Fresh Asparagus, 15 spears, medium length.

    1/2 cup of Water

    1 Tsp Lemon Juice (Pure)

    1 Tsp Salt

Directions

Wash asparagus in cool water and break off ends. Put asparagus and 1/2 cup of water into a sauce/frying pan and turn to high. Once water starts to boil decrease heat and cover with a lid. You can now add the lemon juice but if you want to be able to taste it wait about 5-10 minutes before adding it, same goes with the salt. Let cook for 10-15 minutes.

I like my asparagus pretty soft but if you want it crunchier, let it cook for about 5-10 minutes, instead of 10-15. You can also decrease the amount of water to get the same effect.

Enjoy!
