Recipe ReDux Post # 68 Honey Lemon Asparagus

The Recipe ReDux for March is "Family Springtime Celebrations" and the challenge was to come up with a festive recipe to celebrate the start of Spring.   When I think of Spring the first two things that come to mind (besides Easter of course) are daffodils and asparagus!  That veggie is always on our table at Easter dinner, but usually just steamed... and somewhat ...plain.  I wanted to come up with an asparagus recipe that was a bit more exciting and original.  Lemon and honey seemed like interesting ways to accent it and they worked out well, along with the wants and raisins for a garnish.  It's a super easy and tasty recipe for your Spring table!  I hope you will give it a try along with all of the other Spring time treats from the Recipe Redux group!


1 average sized bunch asparagus, chopped into 1-2 inches pieces  (thinner spears work well)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoons each of chopped walnuts and golden raisins (optional for garnish)
salt and pepper, optional


Coat a large pan with the olive oil, add the asparagus and salute and medium high heat for about 3-4 minutes, until starting to soften.  Meanwhile in a small bowl, whisk the lemon juice and honey together.  Pour them over the asparagus, mix well to coat and then cook for another 1-2 minutes until the asparagus is firm but tender when pierced with a fork.  Garnish with raisins and nuts and serve.

Makes 4 servings
