Crazy Easy Steamed Asparagus

Crazy Easy Steamed Asparagus
Yields: As much as you want
meat-free, dairy-free, egg-free, oil-free, gluten-free, soy-free

  • 1 bunch Asparagus (trimmed)
  • Water
  • Garlic Powder
  • Onion Powder
  • Sea Salt
  1.  Layer two, three half sheet paper towels on top of each other and spray with Water until well saturated
  2. Spread out Asparagus and apply Seasonings liberally
  3. Gather Asparagus into a bundle and roll in the towels 
  4. Microwave for 3.5 minutes
  5. Unroll and enjoy!

Hoff Thoughts: Truth be told, this was not my idea, I lifted it from Alton Brown.  That guy really knows his food stuff.  But it is by far my most preferred way to prepare Asparagus - it's quick, easy & tasty! If you can't tell, I like to use those select-a-size paper towels - 3 squares per layer seems to do the trick.  Basically you just want enough paper towels to wrap around your Asparagus bundle & enough moisture to steam.
