  • 1 pound white asparagus
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted vegan butter or margarine
  • pink pepper
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar


  • Fill a pot with a lid halfway with water and add the salt, sugar, and vegan butter.
  • Cover, and bring to a low boil over high heat.
  • Clean the asparagus, chopping off the woody end of the spears.
  • Peel asparagus. Using a vegetable peeler, and starting about 1 ½ inch (4 cm) from the tip, peel away the remaining tough outer layer.
  • Simmer. Place the prepared asparagus lying down in the pot. Cover, and reduce heat to medium to keep them simmering.
  • Cook for 7 to 9 minutes, or until a knife inserted in one stalk comes out smoothly.
  • Remove from the pot, drain and serve. Sprinkle with pink pepper.



Tips if following a WFPB diet:
Replace sugar or maple syrup.
Replace water and salt with organic vegetable stock.
Omit the vegan butter.
