Asparagus is in season. It costs less now and we should all eat as much as we want! This recipe doesn't take long and we loved it.
I took 1/3 cup of pine nuts and poured them in a small pan. I shook the pan so that the pine nuts spread out evenly. I toasted them in a 350 degree oven for 5 minutes. Then I set them aside. ( This step makes all the difference in the taste of the pine nuts. Don't just throw them in.)
I broke off the bottom of the ends of 2 bunches of asparagus. I broke them up and threw them in a big skillet. I added 2 TBSP coconut oil, (olive oil would work, too) sea salt, and pepper. I cooked this for 6 minutes at medium high heat. In the last minute I squeezed a little lemon juice over the top and stirred the roasted pine nuts in.
Some of us put a little sprinkling of parmesan cheese on top. Bliss.
