Skillet Asparagus & Tomato Medley

The simples are my favorite. Full of color and flavor. This is one of those easy dishes I could eat almost every day. The tomatoes are bursting with juiciness and the sautéed lemon adds a wonderful touch. Something about adding lemon to the skillet brings out their sweetness in a most delicious way. Pairing all of this goodness over a grain of choice, as well as a white bean, rounds this meal out by giving you extra protein and fiber to leave you satisfied without feeling weighed down. Feel free to add other vegetables to this as well. Think of this as just a template.

Skillet Asparagus & Tomato Medley

This Recipe is :





  • 1 ½ cups cherry tomatoes
  • 10 oz. asparagus
