This recipe is the best sauteed asparagus recipe you will ever find (there, I said it).

Generally, this recipe makes about 2-3 servings but I can eat it ALL…unfortunately (for my stomach), I had a lady over and had to reserve half for her. Ugh.

NOTE: Makes about 2-3 (probably 2, haha) servings: 38 Calories, 2g Fat, 4g Carb, 2g Protein.

Cook Time:
About 20 min

1 lb. bunch of asparagus
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon balsamic vinaigrette
1 teaspoon minced garlic
Salt and pepper to taste

What You’ll Need:
1 skillet

Reference Photos:


  1. Cut the bottom 1″-2″ of the asparagus stalk off and throw it away (the white part).
  2. Bring a skillet up to medium-high heat. When it is fully heated (about a minute), add the olive oil, balsamic vinaigrette, and minced garlic. After about 30 seconds, add the asparagus.
  3. Every couple of minutes, stir the asparagus around in the skillet for about 10 minutes.
  4. Bring the heat down to medium low and let simmer, covered, stirring every couple of minutes, for another 5-10 minutes.
  5. Add salt and pepper to taste, serve, and enjoy!

So damn easy and so damn good. Enjoy, dudes!

    AMAZING. I wolfed down the whole lb before i had a chance to get it on a plate or use silverware. I will be making this again tomorrow. Mine were black though bc i dumped in too much balsamic, but whatevs. I used a bit of sea salt. wow, i wish i had more.

    Yeah maybe a little less balsamic. ALSO, if you’re super into presentation, you can blanch the asparagus before you cook it. Here’s how (for next time):

    1. Bring a pot to a boil
    2. Drop asparagus into the boiling water.
    3. Cook for 1 minute.
    4. Drain.

    Then hit the instructions from this recipe. Feel me? Lemme know if u try it!

    I boiled them first tonight, it made them neon, very pretty. Guess I still used too much balsamic bc brown in the end. Can’t wait to make it again tomorrow.

    Hahahaha I love that you’ve made it so much! Despite the brown it’s fucking awesome right?!

    For another variation try wrapping about 2-3 in bacon…For an ultra dude experience, toss on the grill.

    It had the “Lady and the Tramp” in the middle with the two waiters on either side.

    I’ll tell you straight up, my list is going to be John Wayne heavy. All of these companies have well deserved reputations for producing high quality cowboy boots and related western wear.

    Romantically speaking, Allen is more of a heartthrob sort. He may have a much larger, mystery fan foundation amongst the gumsnapping ladies who established off tsunamis of text and telephone votes that choose winners each and every 7 days. In addition, Lambert likes to jump off cliffs, creatively speaking. Let’s say he goes splat during the ultimate faceoff?

    Lambert’s mysterious sexuality can be a turnoff among musicbuyers, who could gobble up more CDs in the more macho Allen. That might give Allen a vastly bigger admirer foundation in addition to a significantly larger, for a longer period career throughout which he could acquire lots more sector awards.

    Bring 2 cups of water to a boil and add the red quinoa.
    But how do you get these amazing foods into your
    diet easily and without breaking the bank. I think most of us bought into this promotional title Superfoods but when last time the ‘mortal’ continental cucumber was claimed
    to be one of the Superfoods, I woke up.

    What you typed made a lot of sense. But, think about this,
    what if you typed a catchier title? I am not suggesting your information isn’t solid,
    but suppose you added a title that grabbed a person’s attention? I mean Sauteed
