We got some fresh asparagus in our produce box this past week. I have never cooked fresh asparagus so started searching for recipes. I found this one in a Weight Watchers cookbook that I got for Christmas.
Orange Asparagus - 4 servings
1 pound fresh asparagus, cleaned well and cut or broken into 1 1/2 inch pieces
2 tsp orange zest
1/4 cup fresh orange juice (this was the juice of one orange)
salt and pepper to taste
Bring about 2 quarts of water to a boil. Place asparagus in the boiling water and cook for 4 minutes.
Drain. Return to pan and stir in the orange zest, juice, salt and pepper.
