This recipe is a fresh-tasting, nicely seasoned vegetable side dish that's a cinch to prepare. It puts to good use those tender, garden-fresh asparagus of springtime.—Jeanette Lawrence, Vacaville, California


  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules
  • 1/8 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/2 pounds fresh asparagus, trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces (about 4 cups)
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce


  1. In a large skillet, melt butter, combine the bouillon, celery salt and pepper. Add asparagus and toss to coat. Cover and cook for over medium-high heat for 2 minutes or until asparagus is crisp-tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in soy sauce; serve immediately.
