How often do you eat asparagus? We don't eat it often... but I am trying to incorporate more vegetables into our meals besides the green beans and corn from a can. Asparagus is super healthy for you, and even if you use butter to cook it with like in this recipe, I think it evens itself out in the healthy category. ;)
This was part of the hubby's Welcome Home dinner you can read about below.
It's also a great contribution to Trim and Bushy Tailed Tuesdays! Make it tonight!
Spicy Asparagus Spears
2 tablespoons Butter
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/2 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
Crushed Red Pepper flakes to taste
1 - 3/4 pounds fresh asparagus, trimmed (I used one bundle)
In a large skillet, melt butter. Stir in the onion powder, seasoned salt, Cajun seasoning and red pepper flakes. Add asparagus spears, stirring gently to coat. Cover and cook for 5 -7 minutes or until crisp-tender, stirring occasionally.
