Favorite Asparagus

Oh my golly goodness this is delicious! I love serving it over brown rice or quinoa. Also beautiful as a simple side. my kids go crazy for this veggie! boo ya

1 1/2 pounds fresh asparagus
olive oil
2 cloves crushed garlic
1/2 small white onion fine dice
no salt seasoning (costco has a great one)
3 tbs Bragg's liquid amino's (find it at the health food store or health section) or 1/4 cup soy sauce (but soy sauce is not clean)
3 tbs honey

In large saute pan add 1 tbs olive oil. Over medium heat saute garlic and onion. While cooking trim asparagus into bit size pieces. Here are all my hints for asparagus... keep in fridge upright in a glass of water with a couple inches water. This helps it keep longer. Then before you trim the tough ends bend one asparagus holding the bottom and top and the asparagus will naturally break at the perfect spot. Discarding all the rough bottom but keeping the yummy rest. Smart huh? Then use that asparagus as a guide for trimming the rest.  Add asparagus to pan and saute over medium heat until it is cooked through but very crisp, about 4 minutes.

 Add no salt seasoning just a dash or two, Bragg's (warning this is saltier then soy sauce, but it is such an incredible product. It is amino acids derived from soy. It is amazing and delicious I use it with and on everything! You should try it.) or soy sauce and honey. Mix all together and let cook another minute.

Serve as a side or over brown rice or quinoa.

Be happy be healthy KCL
