Steamed Orange Asparagus

Hi Everyone,

Happy Monday to you!  Today I am sharing with a simple recipe with lots of flavor.  For dinner the other night I made myself a steak, but I needed a vegetable to go with it.  I had some asparagus in the refrigerator that I needed to use it.  I didn’t want basic steamed asparagus so I decided to zip it up by steaming it with garlic and orange juice.  OMG!  It is delish.  What a fun and easy way to add different flavor to asparagus.

Sometimes asparagus can tend to be a little bitter.  Adding the orange juice tends to cut the bitter flavor away.  All I did was heat up some olive oil and garlic; added my asparagus and orange juice.  Let it steam for 5 minutes and it was done.  It can’t get any easier than that.  The asparagus is tender, a little bit sweet and savory.  I felt the need to add salt and pepper to the dish.

Well that’s it for me.  I have to admit it’s nice making vegetables.  It’s been awhile since I have made a nice dinner.  Wait till Sunday when you see what I paired my asparagus with.

Have a great week!
