Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
Serving Suggestion
Divide cooked asparagus spears into 6 bundles and tie each with a steamed green onion for a simple and elegant presentation.
Tip 2
Trimming Fresh Asparagus
Asparagus spears snap off naturally where they are tough. Simply bend the spear near the bottom end and it will break off at the right point. Or, remove an inch or so of the "woody" portion off the bottom of the stalks with a sharp knife.
Tip 3
Substitute
Prepare using PHILADELPHIA Chive & Onion 1/3 Less Fat than Cream Cheese.
Tip 4
Substitute
Substitute your favorite hot cooked vegetables, such as broccoli, cauliflower, carrots or Brussels sprouts, for the cooked asparagus.
Tip 5
Note
Prepare recipe in 10x6-inch microwaveable dish.
