Perfect--I love this method of cooking asparagus, and thyme is a nice complement.

Most helpful critical review

We did not like this one. The time was perfect, but the thyme was WAY overpowering. I'll use far less if I make this again and maybe even dried.

Perfect--I love this method of cooking asparagus, and thyme is a nice complement.

I made this last night and was very happy with the results. I was disappointed that my grocery store was all of out fresh thyme, so I had to use dried and it was still good though I know would ...

A great alternative to steaming. I'm just learning to cook, and this was quick, simple and a fussy friend said that she doesn't like asparagus, but she likes mine!

Add 1 tbsp of fresh squeezed lemon juice.

I love this recipe. Using fresh thyme just makes it. I like to put a squeeze of fresh lemon juice over it too and I sometimes dust with coarse grated parmesean cheese just before serving.

Mmm loved it!

I've always loved asparagus, but have never been able to get my husband to eat it. He loved this and went back for seconds. Will definitely be using this one again.

I served this asparagus dish with risotto. It was amazing. My husband loved it! Will definitely make again in the future.

I love this dish - so simple to make, impossible to mess up and usually a hit with everyone. Tastes great.
