Orange Steamed Asparagus and Artichoke Hearts

What You'll Need


1 bunch asparagus, bottoms cut off

1 cup artichoke hearts, rinsed and drained (canned or frozen will work)

½ cup sliced red onion

1 garlic clove sliced thin

1 orange, juiced and zested

Ground black pepper to taste (optional)


How to Make It


1 In a dry sauté pan cook the onions and garlic for 2 minutes over medium high heat.

2 Add the asparagus and artichokes and cook for 1 minute.

3 Add the orange juice and zest and cover the pan for 1 minute.

4 Serve immediately (waiting to serve later will turn the asparagus a funky green color).
