One of the quickest and easiest ways to prepare fresh asparagus is to simply blanch them for a couple of minutes and toss them with Omnivore Limone, olive oil, and lemon zest.
2 bunches of Asparagus
2 Tbs extra virgin olive oil
1 Tbsp lemon zest
Omnivore Limone to taste
Fill a pot halfway with water. Bring to a boil.
Breaks the woody ends of asparagus off and discard.
Add the asparagus to the boiling water and lower the heat slightly to maintain a simmer.
Parboil the asparagus from 1 to 4 minutes (depending on the size of your asparagus) until bright green.
Drain the hot water and put the asparagus in a bowl of ice water, or under running cold water to stop the cooking process.
Drain, and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and Omnivore Salt.
Note. When you are working with so few ingredients, it's important to make sure they are of the highest quality.
