Directions

  1. Heat the olive oil and butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion, and saute for a few minutes to release the flavor into the oil. Add the water chestnuts, asparagus, and vinegar; cook and stir for about 10 minutes, until the asparagus is cooked but still crunchy.

It's a good way to do asparagus differently (I usually just steam it). I think it's highly dependent on the quality of the balsamic vinegar, so use a good quality. Easy to do. Water chestnuts add good taste and texture. The first time I made this, I didn't have red onions, so I used white. The second time, I used red onions and dish was vastly improved. Worth a try, even for non-asparagus lovers. (It does look very nice!) Addendum: try adding a red pepper sliced lengthways for color. I think it really adds to the look, and it's a good texture bridge between the water chestnuts and the asparagus. I added the red pepper in at the same time as the asparagus and water chestnuts.

Instead of asparagus, I used this recipe with fresh green beans. They were wonderful!

I used fresh asparagus. Very easy, healthy dish to make. I added a lot more onion and garlic to the dish, because it did seem a bit bland. If you are looking for simple and healthy, this is a good recipe.
