I took this recipe that Tracy shared on her daily blog. This works as a low carb recipe so I posted it here. I don't particularly like Asparagus so I was thinking you could use fresh green beans from your garden this summer as a substitute!
1 lb. asparagus, trimmed and cut in 1-inch diagonal slices
2 T. olive oil
1/4 c. beef broth
4 to 5 slices bacon, crisply cooked and cut into bite-size pieces
pepper to taste
2 T. sesame seed, lightly toasted
In a skillet over medium heat, cook asparagus in oil for 2 to 3 minutes. Add beef broth; cover, reduce heat and simmer for 4 to 5 minutes, until asparagus is cooked to desired tenderness. Stir in bacon, pepper and sesame seed. Serves 4.
