Dress up your asparagus with a Balsamic-Pesto twist.
1 lb (450 g) asparagus, stems trimmed
1⁄4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp water
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp olive oil
- Whisk together balsamic vinegar, water, brown sugar, 3 Onion Dip Mix and Pesto Sauce Mix. Simmer in Multipurpose Pot - 8 cup for 3 minutes. Whisk in olive oil and simmer for an additional minute.
- In Multipurpose Pot, simmer asparagus in boiling water until tender crisp. Strain and plunge into a bowl of cold water. Pat dry and toss with warm dressing. Delicious served warm or at room temperature.
Peel the lower part of the asparagus with a peeler. By peeling this section, you will remove the fibrous skin that develops on the lower half and the entire stalk of asparagus will be tender when cooked.
