The best way to cook green asparagus

It is the asparagus season in Germany again. My family including the kids loves green asparagus.  My favorite way to prepare the asparagus is on a pan.

First chop off the hard ends of asparagus – you can even break them off with your hands,

Then you put some olive oil or butter in a skillet, add the asparagus, season with sea salt and roast it for about 3 minutes. The asparagus will be cooked but crispy and will not lose the beautiful intensive green color. We like to add some freshly grated parmesan cheese and decorate with lemon slices or with cooked hard boiled eggs or fresh cherry tomatoes.

Healthy & Tasty! This way the asparagus fits well as a sides dish to steaks or fish. It works well as a light vegetarian dinner if you add the eggs to it.

Let me know how you like to cook asparagus? Do you prefer the white asparagus or the green asparagus?
