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.Pin It
