Recipe

Asparagus With Lemon Sauce

Times

  • Prep Time : 5 minutes min
  • Cook Time : 10 minutes min
  • Ready Time : 15 min

Servings

4 s

Ingredients

  • 20 medium asparagus spears, rinsed and trimmed
  • 1 fresh lemon, rinsed (for peel and juice)
  • 2 Tbsp reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp dried parsley
  • ? tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/16 tsp salt

Directions

Preparation

1 Place 1 inch of water in a 4-quart pot with a lid. Place a steamer basket inside the pot, and add asparagus. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium. Cook for 5–10 minutes, until asparagus is easily pierced with a sharp knife. Do not overcook.
2 While the asparagus cooks, grate the lemon zest into a small bowl. Cut the lemon in half and squeeze the juice into the bowl. Use the back of a spoon to press out extra juice and remove pits. Add mayonnaise, parsley, pepper, and salt. Stir well. Set aside.
3 When the asparagus is tender, remove the pot from the heat. Place asparagus spears in a serving bowl. Drizzle the lemon sauce evenly over the asparagus (about 1½ teaspoons per portion) and serve.
