Asparagus Recipe for CSA Subscribers

The asparagus season seems to be winding down, but we’ll have some for another couple of weeks or so.  You might be eager to try something a little different, so here we have:

Asparagus With Walnuts, Parmesan and Brown Butter

from the New York Times

Total time: 10 minutes. Serves 4.

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch asparagus (about 3/4 pound), ends trimmed
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme leaves, preferably lemon thyme
  • 1 ounce Parmesan, finely grated (1/4 cup)
  • Kosher salt, as needed
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Procedure

  • Steam the asparagus until just tender, about 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook until the foam has subsided and the butter turns a deep golden brown, about 4 minutes. (Take care that it doesn’t burn.) Stir in the nuts and cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Stir in the garlic and thyme and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Remove from heat and whisk in the cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Spoon nut mixture over warm asparagus and serve at once.
