Lemon Garlic Asparagus

Without question, asparagus is the vegetable we eat the most. It’s something about them, it’s difficult to explain – they are just so delicious. Neither of us are huge vegetable eaters, per se, but the first time we cooked dinner together we made asparagus, and we haven’t stopped making it since. Just so long as they are thin stalks!

It truly doesn’t get any easier than this recipe. Five simple ingredients and 15 minutes of your time and you will have a great side to go along with any protein.
