Spicy Asparagus Spears


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.

The all time best way to eat asparagus is wrapped in bacon and grilled on the George Foreman or a regular grill. The Best. I made it last night in fact. Probably not the healthiest way to eat your veggies, but certainly the yummiest.
