Preparation Time: 20 minutes
- 2-3 tablespoons Tropical Traditions Organic Expeller-Pressed Coconut Oil
- 6 tablespoons butter
- 4 teaspoons garlic, minced
- 1 pound fresh asparagus
- dash salt & pepper
- fresh lemon juice, optional
Wash asparagus, break off ends, then cut into about 2-3 inch pieces.
Melt coconut oil, 3 tablespoons butter and 2 teaspoons garlic in a skillet on medium-high heat. Add asparagus spears. Add remaining butter, garlic, salt and pepper.
Cover the skillet with a lid for about 10 minutes (5 minutes through, mix to make sure that the butter and garlic are covering all pieces). Remove the lid, mix again, and let simmer for about 2-5 more minutes. Add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, if desired.
