Garlic and Sundried Tomato Asparagus

Add a little something extra to your asparagus this evening. The sundried tomatoes add a nice kick of flavour that juxtaposes nicely with the asparagus. Best of all, this is quick and easy to prepare!

All you need:

  • a bunch of asparagus
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped or pushed through a garlic press
  • 3 sundried tomatoes (canned), chopped
  • (sea) salt and fresh pepper (to taste)
  • olive oil (approx 1/2 tbsp)

What you do:

  1. Cut the hard bottom ends off the asparagus and wash.
  2. Bring a small amount of water to boil in a large skillet (about a cm high).
  3. Lay asparagus into the water and cook until they begin to soften and colour has turned bright green (about 2-3 minutes).
  4. Remove asparagus and drain water from skillet.
  5. Heat the olive oil in the same skillet and add the garlic and sundried tomatoes. Stir around.
  6. Add the asparagus, grate in your pepper and season with salt to your taste.
  7. Turn asparagus in pan to fully coat all of them. (I used tongs to make this easier).
  8. Remove from heat and Enjoy!
