This lemon-ginger marinade is also excellent with broccoli rabe, a bold-tasting member of the broccoli family. Cook it as you would the asparagus.


1 1/2 pound(s) asparagus, tough ends snapped off

2 Tbsp canned chicken broth, or homemade chicken stock

1/2 tsp ginger root, freshly grated

1 tsp fresh lemon juice

1 Tbsp scallion(s), minced

1/4 tsp table salt

1/4 tsp black pepper


· Bring 1 to 2 inches of water to a boil in a medium skillet. Place asparagus in skillet, reduce heat to medium and cook until asparagus are tender-crisp, about 6 to 8 minutes; drain well and place asparagus in a large glass serving bowl.
