Asparagus Sauteed w/Spices and Wine

Asparagus makes a nice healthy snack before a game or a side dish for dinner.  Asparagus is nice delicious, crunchy and good for you.  Aside from Vitamin K, asparagus is a good source of fiber, folate and vitamins A, C and E.  Here’s a recipe you can make that takes very little time and has lots of flavor!

Sautéed Asparagus

1 pound asparagus, tough ends snapped (about 16 spears)
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
Tablespoon of espresso
1/4 teaspoon of Turmeric
1/2 teaspoon of Coriander
1/8 teaspoon of Cinnamon
1/4 cup of sweet Riesling  ( I use Barefoot brand Riesling)

Mix the spices in a small bowl and then sprinkle them over the asparagus.  Heat a pan with the olive oil then add the asparagus and wine and sauté them for 6-7minutes and serve.
