By author Elaine Pusateri Cowan - Healthy at Home


  • 16oz fresh asparagus
  • pinch salt


Snap off flat ends of asparagus spears. Fill steaming pot with 4 inches water and bring to a boil. Add salt. Cook standing tips up, in a steaming basket sitting in boiling water. (For small spears like the ones I used 4 minutes should suffice). Drizzle tiny amount of olive oil and add pinch kosher salt.
