Asparagus is an ideal product for those who want to lose weight. Thanks to the fiber in its composition, it has a positive effect on the digestive system and defeats the feeling of hunger for a long time. Steaming asparagus is the best way to preserve its texture and flavor! 

Essential ingredients

  • Asparagus

    250 g (1½ cup)

  • Water

    400 g (2 cup)

Ingredients to taste

Salt, Olive oil, Lemon

How to make

Please follow the next steps:

  1. 1

    Wash and cut the asparagus. Then use a vegetable peeler to remove the skin from the asparagus.

  2. 2

    Now take the asparagus by the ends and bend it. Throw away the hard part.

  3. 3

    Take a steamer. Fill a large pot of 2.5 cm water and place a steamer grid on top. The bottom of the net must not touch the water.

  4. 4

    Place the asparagus in a saucepan and cover with a lid. Place the steamer on the stove if you haven't already.

  5. 5

    Cook the asparagus over medium heat until it turns a bright green color.

  6. 6

    Remove the lid and check the asparagus for doneness. Remove the asparagus from the pot, place on a serving platter and serve hot.

Weight Loss Tips

  • Thin asparagus is ready in 3-5 minutes. The cooking process for thick asparagus takes 6 to 8 minutes.

  • When rinsing your asparagus, pay particular attention to the ends where dirt and grit accumulate the most.
