Asparagus Standing in the Microwave

Asparagus Standing in the Microwave


The method:

Use a Pyrex measuring cup or any microwave-safe glass and about an inch of water. Cooking time varies depending on the size of the asparagus spears and the number of them you wish to cook, as well as the wattage of your microwave. The degree of doneness at which you like your asparagus will factor into the equation, as well.

I cook 12 ounces to a pound of thin asparagus in about six minutes. You might need to tinker just a bit to find your perfect degree of doneness.

To trim asparagus, either simply bend one or two spears until they snap. Leave the others in the rubber band. Using the snapped spears as a measurement, cut through the bundle or cut off the very bottom and gently peel the spears at the point where they bend towards the bottom end.
