Asparagus with Orange and Walnuts (Gluten-Free)

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!

Ummm what does this have to do with our gluten free community? Good point about giving stuff you would need to the community and all....but has nothing to do with celiac disease really, just mentions you should not give gluten free bread to a homeless persons that does not need it stating that it...

In Austin, Wildwood Bakehouse and Wilder Wood Restaurant are totally gluten free. I had the chicken fried steak and gravy and onion rings!!! Awesome!!!

If you yourself have Celiac's disease, you probably shouldn't give gluten-free sandwiches to the homeless, because they're disgusting. Your male neighbor doesn't need tampons. That sort of reasoning should be applied. But you must always remember that the Gospel requires you to treat other people...

Hi there I have this exact same thing.. however I don?t have celiac that I know of.. I found this when google searching for what the heck is wrong with my face. I was wondering if you ever found out.. or if it just went away. Thanks

I have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be e...
