Asparagus with Pine Nuts

(This post may contain affiliate links. Read my full disclosure.)

I recently tried asparagus and now it’s become one of my favorite vegetables.  So I thought I’d give asparagus with pine nuts a try.  Tender, but not overcooked asparagus can be tricky to master. In this recipe, steam the asparagus lightly before sautéing it with red wine vinegar. The final touch is chopped pine nuts sprinkled on top. Just a little goes a long way.
