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.

How to Make It:


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