Asparagus Amandine

5 Min
15 Min

Is there a better combination than asparagus and almonds? It's an underrated food match made in heaven, and we know you'll love the combo in this easy vegetable recipe for Asparagus Amandine. Did you know that "amandine" is really just a fancy way of saying that a dish is garnished with almonds? We love using that term sometimes around guests 'cause it just makes us feel so fancy!

What You'll Need

  • 2 pounds fresh asparagus
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 2 tablespoons diced red bell pepper
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

What to Do

  1. Snap off tough ends of asparagus (see note). Cook asparagus in boiling salted water to cover in a large skillet 3 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain. Plunge asparagus into ice water to stop the cooking process; drain.

  2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat; add almonds, and saut 2 to 3 minutes or until golden. Add asparagus and red bell pepper; cook 3 to 5 minutes. Toss with lemon juice, salt, and black pepper; serve immediately.


The easiest way to snap off tough ends of asparagus is to hold it by the tip end in one hand and bend the other end until it snaps. It'll snap where the most tender part begins.

If you love the taste of old-fashioned root beer, then you'll love this lip-smackin' Root Beer Chicken. The root beer adds a rich caramel accent to the BBQ sauce.
