Asparagus with Sausage

It's been 70 degrees here in New York for the past two days. Which means it's spring. Which means it's totally time to stock up on spring greenies!

So I bought a bunch of asparagus. These little guys are underrated. They're not the prettiest. But when they're paired with some meat and spices, they're glorious! The best part: this meal comes together in less than 10 minutes.

Lunch for Two

1/2 pound (1 small bunch) asparagus, ends chopped off
4 oz spicy sausage
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup shelled edamame
handful of whole almonds
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

*I added a sprinkle of oregano and thyme because I was feeling wild. Get funky.

Bring a pot of water to a boil. Cook edamame in boiling water for 10 minutes. Drain edamame and let cool. Heat up your oil in a large skillet until it's extra hot. Slice up your asparagus into 3 or so pieces per stalk. Chop sausage into 3/4-inch pieces. Add all ingredients to skillet with salt, pepper and any extra herbs. Cook over high heat for 5-7 minutes, stirring every so often so that all sides are done. Serve.
