Blackened asparagus cooked with garlic makes for a tasty, easy side dish!
Asparagus is the go-to vegetable at my house. We have it with dinner at least once a week, usually two or three times a week. Probably because it’s easy for me to make and it is currently a vegetable that my kids all like.
I like to cook at least one easy vegetable side dish for dinner every night – my kids have a regular kid-sized serving, and my husband and I will have a bigger serving, usually mixed with whatever our main dish is.
Time: 10 minutes
1 lb asparagus, ends trimmed, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 Tbsp olive oil
- Heat the olive oil over medium-high heat in a large saucepan.
- Add the asparagus and sprinkle salt, pepper, and garlic powder on top.
- Let the asparagus cook for 5-8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until partially blackened.
