Julie Wunder
Asparagus is simple and easy to sauté on the stove! My version brings out the natural flavor with Rosemary and Lemon. I hope you enjoy my Lemon Rosemary Asparagus as much as I do!

  • ½ tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 bunch asparagus, 1 pound, woody ends removed
  • 1 tablespoon fresh minced rosemary, approx. 6 inch sprig
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic, 2 cloves
  • 1 small lemon, squeezed (or half of a large one)
  • garnish: lemon slices and rosemary sprig


  • Add olive oil to a sauté pan (with a cover) and heat to medium heat.
  • Add the asparagus, rosemary, salt and pepper to the pan and sauté.
  • Cover and allow to cook for about 6-7 minutes, depending on the thickness of the asparagus. Remove lid and stir occasionally.
  • Make a hole in the middle of the pan and add the garlic. Sauté until just starting to become fragrant (about 20 seconds.) Reduce heat to low and mix together the garlic and asparagus and squeeze the lemon over the dish. Cook for an additional minute or until desired crispness. Be careful not to burn the garlic.
  • Garnish with addition lemon and rosemary. Serve immediately.


If you don't have fresh rosemary, substitute a teaspoon of dried rosemary.
