Easy Garlic Asparagus Recipe

This 3-ingredient, super Easy Garlic Asparagus Recipe with Maple and Chili makes eating-in so easy, no matter how busy life gets.

Cooking Garlic asparagus with Maple And Chili for dinner

This recipe is an uncomplicated one – you probably have some chili, garlic and maple hanging out in your fridge, so grab those and a bunch of asparagus. And, with the help of one pan, you can have this dish on your table in less than 10 minutes.

How long do you pan cook asparagus?
Asparagus cooks quick. Super quick in fact.
In order to have crisp asparagus, you might want to keep a close eye on your clock and pan saute the asparagus with the garlic, maple syrup and chili flakes for no more than 3-4 minutes.
Any longer and the asparagus might be more limp than crisp.

Ingredients to make Garlic asparagus

While the recipe I have below shows exact measurements, you don’t have to stick to them.

If you would like to use less garlic, and less maple, go for it. Want to add more chili flakes (my hats off to you), then go ahead.

This Easy Garlic Asparagus Recipe with Maple and Chili is one of my favorite ways to enjoy asparagus, followed by this Sautéed Asparagus Egg Salad.

And they both pair so well with PERDUE® Herbed Olive Oil Seasoned Wings.

PERDUE® Herbed Olive Oil Seasoned Wings do not need to be thawed, they can be baked frozen, right out of the package, and are a tasty way to save tons of time during busy seasons. They are a tasty option no matter if you are preparing a meal for one, a meal for a family or a meal for a party.
