Asparagus With Toasted Pine Nuts & Lemon Vina Recipe
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
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
