Not even close. However, sometimes I feel the need to eat my green brethren. When I do, it usually takes the shape of butternut squash, spinach salads, and fresh corn on the cob.
A few days ago, I managed to snag myself about a pound of fresh asparagus, and a few pounds of sugar-snap peas. The snaps are a Costco staple, and allow me to munch non-guiltily between meals. Tonight, however, they came together in spectacular fashion.
The recipe? One pound of asparagus, base ends trimmed (to be composted), the remainder snapped in two; and about 8 ounces of sugar-snaps. Place about 2 tablespoons of butter or margarine into a large sauté (or deep frying) pan and melt. Add the asparagus to the pan for about three minutes, tossing occasionally.
Now, add granulated or chopped garlic (to taste; I believe you can never put too much garlic into any dish), and at least a decent sprinkling of non-granulated sea salt. Last ingredient to go in are the snaps. Toss and sauté for the next 5-6 minutes. If you are like me, you want the asparagus to be slightly-crisp. Cooking longer turns asparagus to mush, but that's just my opinion. Your mileage may vary.
Pretty inexpensive, reasonably healthy, definitely fast food, very tasty. Feel free to drool here. I would...
