How To Microwave Asparagus

Ingredients

1. Wash the asparagus well. 2. Cut the bottoms of the asparagus spears off. You can do this with a knife by cutting off the woody part at the end.

3. Lay the prepped asparagus out on a microwave-safe dinner plate.

.4. Add a tablespoon of water to the plate, lemon slices, and minced garlic. Then cover it with an upside-down dinner plate.

5. Place in the microwave and cook for about 3-minutes. For very thin asparagus, cooking it for 2-minutes might be more appropriate.

Whereas, for thicker asparagus, cooking it for closer to 5-minutes may be necessary.

7. Use oven mitts! Remove the cooked asparagus from the microwave.

8. Remove the top plate, being careful to avoid the hot steam underneath.

9. Drizzle avocado oil over the asparagus and sprinkle the salt and pepper on top.
