      WONDERFUL! I was looking for a healthy appetizer recipe I could take to a friend's house for a cookout. We needed to bring something healthful and delicious, as my friend is trying to lose a little "fluff". These were full of fresh, wonderful flavor. I did have to make a change simply because I didn't have my steamer handy. First, 2 large lemons was not quite 1/2 cup for me. I added one more lemon to make it 3. This gave me just slightly more than 1/2 cup. It was perfect. Secondly, since my steamer was MIA, I had to drop these into the water, lemon juice, salt and pepper mixture. I boiled them for about 2 minutes (these were very thick stalks). They were still crisp in the center and full of delicious, fat-free flavor. This is now one of my favorite summer asparagus recipes. You MUST try it! Thank you so much for the great recipe!
