Asparagus Amandine

Asparagus Amandine - fresh asparagus, red bell pepper, almonds, butter and lemon juice. Ready in minutes!

This Asparagus Amandine is a great weeknight side dish. It is ready to eat in about 10 minutes! You can't beat that! The asparagus is cooked in boiling water for a couple of minutes and then sautéed with almonds and red pepper for few minutes. The hardest part of this dish is boiling the water!

Make sure you break off the woody ends off of the asparagus before cooking. A simple way to do that is to take the end of the asparagus between your thumb and forefinger and bend it until it breaks. It will break where the woody part ends and the fresh asparagus begins. You don't have to worry about breaking off too much or too little. Use the broken stalk as a guide to trim the remaining asparagus with a knife.
