This is a quick and healthy asparagus recipe to use throughout the week. Part of an on-going fat burning meal plan is to eat small, protein+fiber based meals every 2-3 hours, and this lemon blanched asparagus is a fantastic recipe to use for the greens and fiber in your meals. I like to make a triple batch that will last in the fridge in a large ziplock bag for about 3 days of meals. Make sure not to blanch too long, so that the asparagus maintains a crisp-tender consistency, so that it will remain fresh tasting for a few days, and never mushy. Enjoy!
