Warm Asparagus Spears with Pine Nuts Recipe
In this recipe, we steam the asparagus lightly before sauteing it with red wine vinegar.
The final touch is chopped pine nuts sprinkled on top. Just a little goes a long way to provide some additional crunch to a normally firm vegetable.
1 bunch of asparagus
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 tablespoon red wine vinegar
Salt and pepper

When the asparagus starts to brown slightly it’s ready. Season it with salt and pepper and topped with chopped nuts.
