Asparagus and Caramelized Spring Onion Saute
Prep time: 5 mins
Cook time: 10 mins
Total time: 15 mins
  • 2 lbs asparagus
  • 1 whole bunch of spring onions or green onions root bottoms removed
  • 2 tablespoons butter (You can substitute coconut oil but I prefer butter for this dish.)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Trim woody bottoms off of asparagus and discard. Slice asparagus diagonally into thirds and place on the side.
  2. Slice spring onions or green onions in ¼ inch slices and place on the side separate from the asparagus.
  3. Melt butter in a medium pan over medium heat, once butter begins to bubble add spring onions and sauté until they begin to soften. 2-4 minutes.
  4. Add asparagus and sprinkle with salt and fresh cracked black pepper and toss around in the pan to coat each piece of asparagus with butter.
  5. Saute uncovered for 7-10 minutes or until pierced with a fork easily.
