This is by far the easiest way to quickly cook asparagus. And, it just happens to be delicious too!


  • 1 lb. asparagus spears, ends broken off
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp cream balsamic vinegar
  • 1 pinch of sugar
  • Salt


  1. Rinse asparagus in water and pat dry.
  2. Heat oil in a non-stick large skillet over medium-high heat. Add asparagus, and saute for about 5 minutes.
  3. Add balsamic vinegar and sugar, saute for another 2-3 minutes, or until the asparagus are crisp-tender.
  4. Season with salt to taste.
