This Keto Asparagus recipe is an easy and delicious side dish that’s perfect for the holidays!
I’ve been having a hard time getting creative with my low-carb diet lately. To break out of this rut, I’ve started adding different Keto friendly sides like this low-carb asparagus almondine recipe. The delicious combo of lemon and almonds makes this a perfect match to just about any keto recipe! Serve with fish, or with cauliflowered rice!
I haven’t been very diligent with exercising (it’s actually been pretty non-existent lately) and I’ve been a little too lenient with carbs, but I’m still enjoying the added energy that comes with eating the lazy keto/low carb way. I’m looking forward to getting back to focusing on the Keto diet and introducing intermittent fasting after Thanksgiving.

1 lb. asparagus spears
5 tbsp. butter unsalted
½ a lemon
¼ c. sliced almonds
Salt and pepper
Wash your asparagus spears and break off the woody sections at the bottom. Bring a pot of water to a boil over high heat on the stove.
Place the asparagus into the boiling water, and cook for 2-3 minutes until tender.
Immediately place the asparagus into a bath of ice water to stop the cooking.
Heat 5 tbsp. of unsalted butter in a skillet over medium-high heat on the stove. Place the asparagus into the butter, and sautèe for 1-2 minutes.
Squeeze in the juice from half of a lemon.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Sprinkle ¼ c. of almonds into the skillet and cook for an additional minute.
Place the asparagus on a serving platter and top it with the rest of the melted butter and toasted almonds from the pan.
Pin for later!
