Serves Tool

Serves To:USMetric
1 Pound(lb)  asparagus
4 Tablespoon(T)  butter
2 Tablespoon(T)  walnuts, chopped
1 Teaspoon(t)  curry powder
1/2 Teaspoon(t)  cumin
1 1/2 Teaspoon(t)  splenda


Snap the ends off of the asparagus where they want to break naturally. Put in a microwaveable container with a lid, or use a glass pie plate covered with plastic wrap. Either way, add a tablespoon or two of water, and cover. Microwave on high for 5 minutes. Don't forget to uncover as soon as the microwave goes beep, or your asparagus will keep cooking and be limp and sad! While that's cooking, put the butter in a medium skillet over medium heat. When it's melted, add the walnuts. Stir them around for 2 to 3 minutes, until they're getting toasty. Now stir in the curry powder, cumin and Splenda, and stir for another 2 minutes or so. Your asparagus is done by now! Fish it out of the container with tongs, put it on your serving plates, and divide the curried walnut butter between the three servings.
