Easy Asparagus Recipe

- 2 tablespoons butter, or more as needed
- 1 bunch asparagus, trimmed
- 1 teaspoon honey
- ⅛ teaspoon garlic powder
- ⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper
Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a skillet over medium-low heat. Cook asparagus in melted butter, stirring a few times, until tender, 6 to 8 minutes.
Drizzle honey over the asparagus and stir to coat; season with garlic powder and cayenne pepper.
If you find the asparagus sticks to the pan, you can add up to 1 tablespoon butter more while cooking.
For a healthier alternative, use 2 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil instead of butter.
