I made this recipe a couple of weeks ago and it was delicious! I served it as a side dish and then ate the leftovers for lunch served over couscous. Asparagus season is coming up soon- I can’t wait!

Asparagus with Cranberry, Pine Nuts & Feta Recipe
Recipe type: Side Dish
  • 1 Bunch Fresh Asparagus
  • 2 Tablespoons Virgin Coconut Oil
  • ⅓ Cup Pine Nuts
  • ⅓ Cup Dried Cranberries
  • ¼ Cup Feta Cheese
  1. Trim the woody ends off the asparagus. Chop the asparagus into 1-2" pieces.
  2. In a skillet heat the coconut oil over medium heat. Add the pine nuts and toast until slightly browned- about 4-5 minutes. Remove the pine nuts from the pan.
  3. Add the asparagus to the same skillet (add more oil if needed, I didn't need to). Cook the asparagus for 5 minutes or until it turns bright green and slightly soft.
  4. Just before asparagus is done add the dried cranberries and pine nuts- cook for 1 minute and remove from heat.
  5. Place asparagus mixture on a serving plate and sprinkle with feta cheese.
