This white asparagus recipe is not just easy and simple but also healthy. To make asparagus we are not using any additional water to cook the vegetable. It will be steamed in its own liquid which is the best way as all the nutrients will be available, and won’t get lost in the boiling water. If you cannot get white asparagus this method works very well with green asparagus too but the cooking time would be shorter. Happy Cooking!
