Ingredients

  • 1

    cup frozen raspberries

  • 1

    juice of 1/2 orange, or 1 teaspoon frozen orange juice concentrate

  • 1

    pound fresh asparagus

  • 1

    teaspoon orange zest (optional)

Directions

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.
