Large skillet
Measuring spoon


1 bunch asparagus
1 teaspoon olive oil
2 tablespoon cold water
1⁄4 unit lemon


Wash your hands with soap and water, then gather all your equipment and ingredients and put them on a counter.

  1. Put the asparagus, water, and oil in the skillet.
  2. Turn the heat to high and bring to a boil.
  3. Cook until the water has been absorbed and the asparagus starts to sizzle, about 5 minutes.
  4. Remove asparagus from the skillet. Squeeze the lemon over the asparagus and serve right away.


One kind of asparagus is white. It gets that way because it is covered up and grown without sunlight.
