Asparagus with Sage Butter

February 19, 2010

This post is really more of an idea than a recipe. I have some dried sage from our garden that I love to use with asparagus.

Steam some asparagus until it is just tender. While it is steaming, add some sage to a bit of butter in a pan to melt the butter and cook the sage.

Serve the asparagus with the sage butter.

    Great way to serve assparagus. I bet the sage imparts an extra something special to them.

    Hi Mark!
    Sage has become one of my favorite herbs since I started growing it myself. If you have any space for a garden or a pot, I highly recommend it! Thanks for your comment!

    Love this simple preparation. I’ve had asparagus on my mind…thanks for the inspiration!

      Thanks for your comment, Jenn! Asparagus is probably my favorite vegetable. We planted some recently. It’s going to be hard to wait the 3 years or so before it’s ready! Apparently it’s easy to grow, though, once it gets established.
