Sautéed Asparagus

A quick saute in Olive Oil makes fresh asparagus an amazing side dish. 



Hold each stock of asparagus under running water until all signs of sand and dirt are gone. Set aside on a towel to dry. 

The bottom end of the asparagus is very tough and needs to be removed. Take each asparagus stalk and hold the middle of it with one hand. Use your other hand and hold the tough end of the stalk. Gently bend the asparagus stalk down, so the tough end snaps off. Repeat until all the asparagus are done.

Heat the More Than Olives Meyer Lemon Olive Oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add the asparagus and season with a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Cook the asparagus, stirring occasionally until cooked through but still bright green, and firm. Probably about 4-10 minutes, depending on the thickness of the stocks.  

Transfer the asparagus to a platter and garnish it with lemon zest.*For other flavors, use More Than Olives Garlic Olive Oil
, More Than Olives Jalapeno Olive Oil
, More Than Olives Basil Olive Oil
or More Than Olives Blood Orange Olive Oil

More Than Olives

At More Than Olives we thoughtfully select specialty foods that will enhance your kitchen culinary experiences. We continue to look for new products and we welcome you to visit our Folsom store for tasting experiences.

“This is a great little place. The staff is super friendly and helpful. We were visiting from GA and couldn’t take the large bottles of oil or vinegar back with us on the plane so they helped us pick out our favorites and shipped them to us. It all arrived in perfect condition. Everything is so good but our favorite is the Sex on the Beach balsamic vinegar! If you’re in Folsom you have to go! ❤️”

“The olive oils and vinegars are so tasty. I love how easy it is to refill the bottles. I am looking forward to salads, marinades and more this summer as fresh fruits and vegetable become available. Love the staff and love the quality of the products.”
