Crumbled Bacon Asparagus

Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 bunches fresh asparagus
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 pound bacon, crispy-fried
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes, optional
  • Coarse ground black pepper for garnishing

Instructions

  1. In a large skillet or sauté pan, combine melted coconut oil, sea salt, and pressed garlic. Add asparagus stalks, one-by-one, to pan making sure not to overlap. Sauté for approximately 7-9 minutes or until asparagus turns a deep green and softens but isn’t mushy. Remove stalks, cut into halves or thirds, set aside in a medium-sized serving bowl, and repeat process until all stalks are sautéed. Add additional coconut oil and pressed garlic to the sauté pan, as desired, for remaining batches.
  2. In a separate skillet, fry bacon to a crispy consistency. Set aside and pat with paper towels or napkins to remove excess grease.
  3. Crumble bacon over asparagus in serving bowl and garnish with black pepper. If desired, scoop sautéed garlic mixture from pan into a small dish, add one tablespoon of coconut oil, and one tablespoon dried parsley flakes. Stir evenly and drizzle over Crumbled Bacon Asparagus.
