Distinctively rich in flavor, asparagus is a good source of vitamin C, folate, iron and copper.

Ingredients

(Serves 6)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 pounds fresh asparagus, woody ends removed and cut into 1 1/2-inch lengths

Directions

In a large saucepan, heat the water, sugar and soy sauce over high heat. Cook until boiling, and then add the asparagus. Reduce heat to low and simmer until the asparagus is tender-crisp, about 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a serving dish and serve immediately.
