Simply Steamed Asparagus

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Makes even tough asparagus, tender and tasty! Try using vinaigrette dressing in place of the butter too.

INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):


  • Place water in the bottom half of a steamer pan set. Add salt and butter, and bring to a boil.
  • Trim the dry ends off of the asparagus. If the spears are thick, peel them lightly with a vegetable peeler. Place them in the top half of the steamer pan set. Steam for 5 to 10 minutes depending on the thickness of the asparagus, or until asparagus is tender.

  • Note:

    If you do not have a steamer pan set, you can use a steamer basket inserted into a large pot.
