My husband is an asparagus lover. If it was up to him, he’d have a steak and asparagus every single night for dinner. I love asparagus as well, and when it’s in season, we have it a lot. And as much as I love it roasted or sauteed with oil and garlic, it’s always fun to find a new way to serve it up.
This sauteed asparagus recipe is such a great way to change things up. It’s super easy, and you probably have everything on hand for it. I love mustard, and could eat it on everything, so I guess it’s only natural that I love it so much in this recipe. And the maple syrup sweetens it up just enough to bring that extra something to it.
I will never complain about side dishes being boring again!!
- 1 pound asparagus, cut into 2 inch pieces
- 1 tablespoon real maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Heat one inch of water in a large skillet to boiling. Add the asparagus, bring the water back up to a boil, then reduce to medium. Cover the pan and cook for 4-5 minutes, or until the asparagus is crisp-tender. Drain.
- In a small bowl, combine the maple syrup, mustard and oil. Drizzle over the asparagus and then serve.
