Achieving tender, but not overcooked, asparagus is often a fine art. In this recipe, we steam the asparagus lightly before sautéing it with red wine vinegar. The final touch is chopped pine nuts sprinkled on top. Just a few go a long way to making this dinner vegetable dish extra tasty.
Choose medium sized asparagus for ease of cooking and quality. The bigger the spears the woodier they may become, while the very small or thin spears may simply overcook before you know it and lose attractiveness and nutrients.
To prepare: While holding the middle of each stalk with one hand hold the bottom of the stalk in the other. Snap off the bottom. They break perfectly removing the woodiest part of the stalk. Compost the bottoms.
For best preparation, steam for just a few minutes, until fork tender or a knife blade easily slides into the stalk.
Oven baking is also a very popular method of cooking asparagus.
Asparagus with Pine Nuts is first steamed, then sautéed in a pan with olive oil and red vinegar.
