Warm Asparagus Spears with Pine Nuts

Asparagus with Red Wine Vinegar and Pine Nuts


Tender, but not overcooked asparagus is often a fine art. In these recipe, we steam the asparagus lightly before sautéing it with red wine vinegar. The final touch is chopped pine nuts sprinkled on top. Just a little goes a long way.


Prep Time

5 min

Cook Time

10 min



1 bunch of asparagus

1 tablespoon olive oil


1/2 tablespoon red wine vinegar

Salt and pepper

Chopped pine nuts


How to Make It:


Cut the ends of the asparagus stems and steam the spears for about 3 minutes.


Once the asparagus has steamed, over medium heat, heat the olive oil. Add the red wine vinegar and asparagus and sauté for about 2 minutes. When the asparagus starts to brown slightly it’s ready. Season it with salt and pepper and topped with chopped nuts.
