Who doesn’t love Asparagus? How about Bacon? Combine the two with toasted garlic and it’s an infusion of a good vegetable side dish. This is very easy and quick to do.
Slice the bacon into small pieces. Brown in a non stick pan until crunchy. Put the browned bacon on a plate and set aside. On the same pan toast the finely chopped 2 or 3 cloves of garlic. Don’t burn it. Once toasted, set it aside along with the browned bacon.
Using the same pan, pour about 2 tbsp of water, add the asparagus and let it sautÃ©/steam for a few minutes. Not too long coz you want to retain the asparagus freshness, crunchiness and color. Season with salt and pepper. Turn the stove off and stir in the toasted garlic and bacon.
Perfect veggie side to accompany either chicken, pork chops or steak.
