Asparagus With Toasted Pine Nuts & Lemon Vina Recipe

Recipe Ingredients

1 lb asparagus, fresh spears
3 tbsp pine nuts
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tbsp lemon juice, fresh
1 clove garlic, crushed
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp basil, dried whole
1/2 tsp oregano, dried whole
1 pepper, freshly ground

Recipe Preparation

Snap off tough ends of asparagus. Remove scales from stalks with
knife or vegetable peeler, if desired. Place spears in a steaming
rack over boiling water; cover and steam 4-5 minutes or until spears
are crisp-tender. Transfer to a serving platter. Sautee pine nuts in
a small skillet over medium heat 2-3 minutes, until browned. Set
aside. Combine olive oil and remaining ingredients in a medium
saucepan; stir with a wire whisk to blend. Cook over medium heat 2-3
minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring constantly. Pour over
asparagus. Sprinkle with pine nuts. Let stand to room temperature
before serving.

Food Tips of the Week

Dieting made easy

When deciding on a weight loss program, it is essential to try to restrict your intake of salt, fat and refined carbohydrate.
The case against low carb diets
Its popular as hell, but it is truly safe and healthy for you?
Remember, one point that is usually overlooked, it is very hard (although certainly not impossible) for vegetarians to follow a reduced carbohydrate diet.
Eliminating carbs might mean missing out on vital nutrients from healthy foods which must be part of any well adjusted diet, specifically those obtained from grains, vegetables and fruits.
Carotenoid foods
(includes cilantro, turnip greens and winter squash)
These colorful healthy plants are rich in the carotenoids believed by nutritionalists be a key nutrient in minimizing the risk of cancer, particularly those cancers involving the lung, esophagus and stomach. Most are low in calories, so you should add them to your weight loss regime.
