Great combination of asparagus and olives!!! For a change of pace, you can use carrots, eggplant or even zucchini instead of the asparagus.
- Trim tough stems from asparagus.
- In a large skillet over medium heat, sauté garlic and olives in oil about 5 minutes.
- Add asparagus, salt, pepper and the water.
- Cover and cook over medium heat until asparagus is tender (3 to 5 minutes).
The only problem with this recipe is that I should have doubled it! It was delicious, pretty, and healthy. My dinner guests ate every single spear and olive.
I place the asparagus, garlic, oil and pepper in heavy duty foil and grilled 15 minutes to perfection. I left the olives whole. Made for ZWT 6 Thanks.
Very good. Not amazing, but they were what I expected. Very fresh tasting because the flavors of the olives didn't do too much. Made for ZWT6
