Sauce Preparation:

Melt Gold ’n Soft® Vegetable Oil Spread in small skillet. Remove from heat and stir in garlic and lemon juice.

Asparagus Preparation:

Rinse the asparagus with water and remove the tough woody ends of the asparagus. Place trimmed asparagus in a rectangular glass baking dish or other microwave-safe dish. Sprinkle a dash of salt on the asparagus and add 2 tablespoons water. Cover the dish with plastic wrap, pierce once with the tip of a sharp knife. Microwave on high for 2-3 minutes, depending on the thickness of the spears. Stir the asparagus and test for doneness, they should be crisply tender. If more time is needed, cover as before, then cook in 30 to 45 second intervals, stirring the spears each time, until crisply tender; be careful not to overcook, it’s better to undercook them than to cook too long.

Spoon lemon sauce over cooked asparagus, sprinkle with toasted almonds and serve.
