Ideal Protein recipe: Pan-roasted asparagus with lemon and garlic

Pan-roasted asparagus with lemon and garlic

Makes 4 Servings of Pan-roasted Asparagus
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 7 minutes
Total Time: 12 minutes

  • 1 pound (1 bunch) fresh asparagus, bottoms trimmed if necessary (I used a 1-cup portion, and it worked fine)

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil

  • 1 Tbsp water

  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and cut in half (I used 1/2 tsp chopped garlic from a jar)

  • 1 lemon, juiced (or lemon juice from a bottle)

  • salt and pepper to taste

  1. In a large sauté pan with a lid, on high heat, add the asparagus, olive oil, water, and garlic.

  2. Cook for about 2 minutes uncovered, or until the water has almost evaporated.

  3. Toss the asparagus with tongs, cover the pan and cook for 1 minute.

  4. Remove the lid and toss the asparagus again.

  5. Put the lid back on and repeat until the asparagus are crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. The asparagus may brown slightly in spots, which adds to the pan-roasted flavor.

  6. Add the lemon juice and toss to combine.

  7. Remove the garlic, and taste for salt and pepper.

  8. Serve hot.

  9. Verdict: Yummy. Keeper.
