Asparagus - Snap!

My Grandma's RecipesGuaranteed you'll love the blending of the flavors in this Asparagus recipe that has horseradish and sour cream. I know! Doesn't that sound dee-li-she-us! A perfect compliment to a dinner of roast beef and parboiled new potatoes.

Asparagus with Horseradish Sour Cream Sauce

Ingredients
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.

Tips:
  • 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.
My Grandma's RecipesAll-Clad Stainless Asparagus Pot : No microwave? Love to cook your veggies on the stove top? This stainless steel steamer is perfect. The tender asparagus tips are held farthest from the heat, while thicker stems are just above the boiling water. Use this stainless pot to steam other vegetables too!
