Thanksgiving ready in just 15 minutes! Make this beauty of a side dish for your Thanksgiving table.
It’s November. That means that I am embroiled in wild-eyed planning for two birthdays and my epic annual Thanksgiving dinner. But really, it’s Thanksgiving that captures most of my attention always. Like I said, my dinner is epic.
Planning my menu for Thanksgiving is a trial in patience and organization. I am fortunate to have six burners, two ovens and a rotisserie to work with. The turkey always goes in the rotisserie, rendering a juicy, easy, hands-off bird without hogging up one of my ovens.
But even with two ovens, I avoid planning to use them much. Ovens are reserved for my beloved chestnut dressing and warming or reheating dishes that have been made ahead. That means that side dishes have to fit into certain qualifications:
Asparagus with Pomegranate, Toasted Walnuts and Blue Cheese
- Can be made ahead (a day ahead is best) or …
- Are fast and easy (simple, simple, simple) or …
- Can be served cold.
is a perfect side dish for Thanksgiving. (Hint: this is a new one hitting my table this year!)
It takes a mere 15 minutes to make and can be served hot or at room temperature. It’s delicious either way.
This is a great way to take good ol’ steamed asparagus and make it something really special.
