Healthy Recipe of the Week

Pan-Roasted Asparagus

Asparagus is ready for spring fling!

Look for asparagus at your local farmers markets. Seek out spears with dry, tight tips. Try to find a bunch that has similar-sized stalks so they will all be done cooking at the same time. 

lAsparagus contains 2 grams of fiber, a healthy serving of vitamin C, and 1/3 of the day’s folate and vitamin K for each half cup of cooked asparagus. All for only 20 calories!


  • 1 pound Asparagus (thick-stemmed)
  • 1 tablespoon Water
  • 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Butter
  • 1 teaspoon Soy Sauce (low-sodium recommended)


In a sauté pan over high heat, cook asparagus in water, olive oil, butter, and soy sauce until bright green and charred in spots (about 2 – 3 minutes).

Yields: 4 servings
