Charred Asparagus with Lemon, White Wine, and Garlic

As I was cooking my dinner I realized that I needed some greens.  I happened to have a bundle of asparagus just waiting in my fridge, but I also only had 10 minutes until the rest of my dinner was going to be ready.  So making this quick cooked asparagus was a perfect option to go with my fancy risotto!


  • 1 handful asparagus, ends cut
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 splash white wine
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice and a few pieces of zest
  • pepper
  • 1/2 tablespoon butter (optional)

How to:

  1. Beginning by placing your asparagus in a covered pan with the garlic and a bit of water, steam for 5 minutes until tender.
  2. Add in the wine, lemon, and pepper.
  3. Continue to cook for a few minutes until the liquid is gone.
  4. Once all the liquid is gone, let the asparagus get a little charred on each side, then finish with the butter.
  5. Once the butter is melted and has cooked for 2 minutes, you are ready to eat and enjoy!
