Photo of Nutrition Facts of Ginger Almond Asparagus
2 Cups
Prep time:
5 minutes
Cooking time:
10 minutes


¾ pound asparagus, washed and trimmed (2 1/2 cups sliced)
1 teaspoon oil
3 Tablespoons slivered almonds
¼ teaspoon salt
Pinch of black pepper
¼ teaspoon sugar
⅛ teaspoon ginger powder


1. Slice the asparagus diagonally into pieces about ¾ inch long.
2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add remaining ingredients. Stir and sauté until asparagus is a brighter green, 3-5 minutes.
3. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and cook until the asparagus is just fork-tender. Avoid overcooking. Shake the pan occasionally to prevent sticking or burning.
4. Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.
