Asparagus with Mustard Sauce February 7th, 2011

When eating on my own, I’m terrible at remembering to pair a veggie with a main dish.  This one is my easy go-to for when I’m running out of the store and need something.


  • 1 pound asparagus
  • Chopped parsley

Other supplies:

  • Salt
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Dijon mustard
  • Red wine vinegar
  • Pepper

Click the tips off of the asparagus.  Add teaspoon of salt and asparagus to boiling pot of water.  Cover and boil for a couple of minutes.  Whisk 3tbsp olive oil, 1-2 tsp dijon mustard, 1tbsp red wine vinegar, pinch of chopped parsley, and some salt an pepper in a bowl.  Drain asparagus and drizzle sauce over the heads.
