  • Sometimes living frugally means, learning to cook with new things. I recieved some asparagus in my basket last week. It was a first for all of us, except hubby. I was a little hesitant, but I actually liked it. It was really simple to make too! I tried it on both the stove top and the pressure cooker.

Stove Top Method
  • 1 bunch thin asparagus spears, trimmed
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon seasoning salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

  1. Preheat an oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Place the asparagus into a mixing bowl, and drizzle with the olive oil. Toss to coat the spears, then sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, garlic, salt, and pepper. Arrange the asparagus onto a baking sheet in a single layer.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until just tender, 12 to 15 minutes depending on thickness. Sprinkle with lemon juice just before serving.

Pressure Cooker Method

Place washed asparagus in pressure cooker, with tray. Fill with 1 cup of water. Place lid on and allow cooker to fill with pressure. Once pressure valve begin to rock gently, set timer for 1-2 minutes. Cool down rapidly and enjoy. We sprinkled nutritional yeast on our asparagus. It was good!
