Asparagus with Almonds – Gluten-Free

Is quick and easy what you have time to cook, although healthy is what you need? Asparagus and slivered almonds in a wok or skillet will do all that and also taste great.  Season it with soy sauce and parsley, or use red wine vinegar and garlic.

Either way, it’s delicious, it’s good for you and it’s quick and easy.  It’s also naturally gluten-free.  This tastes good enough to serve with a holiday dinner, but it’s easy enough to fix for a quick meal by yourself.

Asparagus with Almonds – Gluten-Free


1 Pound Asparagus

2 Tablespoons Butter or Margarine (Earth Balance could be used to be dairy-free), or Olive Oil (for a paleo diet)

1/4 Cup Slivered Almonds

1/2 Teaspoon Soy Sauce, Tamari (gluten-free), or Red Wine Vinegar

1/2 Teaspoon Salt

1 Teaspoon Chopped Parsley, or 1 Clove Minced Garlic


Wash and trim asparagus.  Break in 1-inch lengths; set aside.

Heat butter in wok or skillet over medium-high heat; add almonds and cook, stirring constantly, until beginning to brown.

Add asparagus and continue cooking for about 5 minutes, until crisp-tender.

Stir in seasonings and serve.
