Asparagus with Horseradish Sour Cream Sauce
2 lbs asparagus spears
1/2 cup thick sour cream
1/3 cup drained horseradish
1/4 teaspoon salt
Few grains cayenne pepper or 1/8 teaspoon paprika
Cook asparagus spears to tender crisp; drain. Meanwhile make sauce. Beat sour cream slightly, add remaining ingredients and blend. Serve with cooked asparagus spears.
- Trim asparagus spears, place in a microwave safe plate, add 3-4 tablespoons of water, cover with plastic wrap and microwave for 3-4 minutes. The spears turn out tender-crisp, delicious!
- Toss the sauce with the cooked asparagus spears, chill and serve with your meal.
