Ingredients Needed

  1. 1 pound (455 g) asparagus
  2. 4 tablespoons (56 g) butter
  3. 2 tablespoons (16 g) chopped walnuts
  4. 1 teaspoon curry powder
  5. teaspoon cumin
  6. 1 teaspoons Splenda

Cooking Instructions

Snap the ends off of the asparagus where they want to break naturally.

Put it in a microwaveable container with a lid or use a glass pie plate covered with plastic wrap.

Either way, add a tablespoon or two (15 to 30 ml) 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.
