Ingredients

Method

Prep time: 10 mins Cook time: 10 mins

Trim the woody ends from the asparagus and discard.

Heat the olive oil in a pan over a medium heat and add the pine nuts, cranberries and salt. Cook for 5-6 minutes, stirring. Add the asparagus and carry on cooking, adding a little more oil if necessary, until the stalks are bright green and tender. This should take around 5 to 7 minutes, depending on the thickness of the asparagus stalks.

Place the asparagus on a serving plate and spoon the cranberries and nuts over the top and serve.
