Dry-Charring Is The Best Method For Cooking Asparagus. Here's Why
By Angel Albring
Asparagus is a nutrient-dense vegetable that is low in calories, high in fiber, and great for digestive, heart, and brain health. The veggie can be grilled, roasted, sautéed, and steamed, but there's one cooking method you probably haven’t tried — dry-charring.
To char vegetables in this manner, you simply place them directly on a pan and cook them on the stovetop, with no butter or oil. By skipping the fat, your cooking pan will get very hot without smoking, so the vegetables become charred and crispy, with a subtle smoky aftertaste.
Dry-charring is quick and easy and creates a crispy exterior and a tender interior. For asparagus, let it sit in the pan and get hot on one side, and when it begins to sweat, flip it and let the other side do the same.
