I’m trying to eat healthier. Again. I’m eating ice cream while I type this, but that’s besides the point. My husband is diabetic and I need to work harder at making low-carb meals for us (he’s currently at the gym which is why I can eat ice cream without feeling bad).
If you scroll through Pinterest for side dish ideas there are a ton of options that look great, but most of them are starchy or covered in cheese. I love plain and simple and often roast veggies, but sometimes I want something even quicker. I steam veggies all the time but for this sauteed asparagus, I swapped out the water for Swanson chicken broth. Using broth instead of water really steps up the flavor with herbs and spices but this recipe couldn’t be much easier. You steam the asparagus for a few minutes then saute in a bit of butter and seasonings. A side dish that’s not boring, not terrible for you, and ready in under 15 minutes. Seriously.
- 1 lb fresh asparagus washed & trimmed
- 1 cup Swanson's chicken broth
- 1/2 Tablespoon butter
- 1/2 teaspoon onion salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 Tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
- sprinkle of shaved Parmesan cheese optional
- Wash your asparagus and chop off the ends.
- In a large skillet (should be large enough to hold the asparagus without bending them), over high heat, add the asparagus and broth. Cover and cook for 3 minutes minutes, shake the pan, then cook an additional 2 minutes or until the asparagus is fork tender.
- Drain off the excess broth and return the skillet to the heat.
- Add in the butter, onion salt, pepper, and grated Parmesan cheese and use a spatula to saute over medium-high heat until the butter has melted and the asparagus begins to brown.
- Remove from heat, transfer to your serving dish, and sprinkle with shaved Parmesan, if desired.
Swanson Broth comes with a new screw-on top (no more pull tab which I splashed all over the counter every single time) so you can use one cup, replace the top, and use the rest the next day or later that week.
Try using chicken broth in place of water in your next recipe and see how much flavor it adds. You’ll be hooked.
