I’ve always loved asparagus because of how fun it is to eat! Asparagus isn’t like spinach or lettuce where I feel like a cow eating it with stems and leaves sticking stubbornly out of my mouth. Instead, asparagus is crunchy and texturally satisfying. Also, fun fact, 1 cup of asparagus has 100% of the daily value of Vitamin K for blood clotting and bone support.
If you follow our Avolicious Instagram, you’ll know that I was sick this past week. I had a fever and I still have a sore throat, but I made this delicious asparagus dish that was both healthy and satisfying. My recipe was based off of my spiced fried rice recipe in that I used similar super healthy spices.
Here’s the simple recipe and I hope you give it a try!
1 pound Asparagus (duh)
1 tbsp Minced garlic/garlic powder
1/2 tsp Turmeric
1/2 tsp Black Pepper
(That’s it!! only 4 ingredients!!)
1.) Wash asparagus and chop into 1.5 inch pieces.
2.) Heat 1 tbsp. water in a pan and add minced garlic if using
3.) Once water is hot, add asparagus and cook for 2 minutes
4.) Add turmeric and black pepper
Yay!! All done. This recipe is easy easy you really don’t need to have many cooking skills for it! Plus, the turmeric is amazing for fighting inflammation, and black pepper helps the body absorb the nutrients from the turmeric.
