The farmer’s markets are bursting with so many wonderful vegetables to choose from. June is here and the weather is heating up in the Carolinas. All this month we will be roasting, grilling, sauteing and devouring some of our favorite vegetables and of course sharing them with you. For those of you lucky enough to have your own asparagus patch head on out and start picking and for those of us who don’t, it’s time to take a trip to your local farmer’s market. This is my favorite method for cooking asparagus. It is so flavorful and easy.

  1. In a skillet melt butter and add the garlic. Drop in asparagus spears and saute the spears for approximately 10 minutes, turning them with tongs so that all the sides get coated with the butter/garlic. The asparagus is done when it starts to brown slightly and is still firm. The garlic will also start browning. Remove from heat, dish up and serve. Makes 2 servings.
