Why do you need to know how to steam asparagus?! Well, it can be messy and time consuming to do it on the stove top and you have to watch it closely with all that steam coming at you and fogging up your glasses! This way is just...well...easy! If you don't have a microwave steamer you may want to invest in one today! I LOVE MINE!!!
Quick and Easy and Healthy!
I use the tupperwave steamer.
Put 1/4 C. water in bottom bowl
Add Colander Bowl
break off woody bottom of Asparagus spears
Rough Chop Asparagus (I cut on an angle into 3rds)
Add Asparagus to the colander and sprinkle with
kosher salt to taste
Add about 1 Tablespoon of butter chopped into smaller pieces and arrange over the spears.
Put on lid and cook on High for 3 to 5 min to desired doneness!
Easy, fast and tasty! ...AND.... The extra butter melts down into the water below so you get just a taste!
