  • 1 pound fresh asparagus
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest (optional)


Servings 4


Step 1

Put raspberries in a saucepan with orange juice or orange juice concentrate. Simmer, stirring often, until raspberries have fallen apart and the mixture looks like a sauce, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

Steam asparagus over hot water until bright green and soft, but not mushy. Place asparagus in a serving dish and top with sauce. Serve hot or at room temperature. Garnish with orange zest, if using.
