    Asparagus with Orange and Walnuts (Gluten-Free)

    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    A splash of citrus is one of the easiest ways to enliven any side of vegetables, especially when you use a generous amount of fruit.

    The orange zest in this dish helps bring a tasty zing and a great aroma to the walnuts. I’ve had a lot of luck with this flavor combination on broccoli and green beans as well. Substituting regular green asparagus with the white version requires that you peel them before hand. However, the extra time pays off with a striking visual presentation.

    Ingredients:
    1 pound asparagus, bottoms trimmed
    1 ½ tablespoons orange zest
    ¼ cup orange juice
    ¾ cup walnuts
    2 tablespoons butter
    2 teaspoons salt, divided
    1 teaspoon pepper
    4 quarts water

    Directions:
    Preheat oven to 325° F. Spread walnuts in an un-greased baking dish and toast for 5-7 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent burning. Remove from oven and roughly chop after nuts have cooled.

    Meanwhile, bring water to a rigorous boil and season with half the salt. Boil asparagus for about 5 minutes, until tender but still crisp. Drain and set aside.

    Melt butter in a large skillet and add chopped nuts. Add orange zest and juice and cook for 1-2 minutes. Add cooked asparagus and toss to thoroughly coat. Season with remaining salt and pepper.

    I've only ever used lemon and asparagus. What a great idea to use orange and throw in a few nuts as well. (I prefer to use pecans vs walnuts). Thanks for the great idea!

    Update chicken night with fresh apples and seasonal cider for a meal that feels like fall. Anytime you cook down apple cider, the flavor intensifies making this a nice pair to rice and vegetables, whichever you happen to have on hand. A crisp Granny Smith works best to compliment the cider, but any apple will do.
    Ingredients:
    4-5 boneless chicken breasts or thighs

    To the OP, once in a while this stuff happens.  Please feel free to start a new topic if that would make it easier.  I am afraid this is just part of forums on the internet. I hope this didn’t chase you off.
