Apricot Asparagus & Carrots

Apricot Asparagus And Carrots
From WomenHeart's All Heart Family Cookbook

Prep time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 5 minutes

Serves 4


1 lb/450g asparagus, trimmed & halved crosswise
2 carrots, julienned
½ cup all fruit marmalade (I didn’t have so I used ginger marmalade plus 4 coarsely chopped dried apricots)
1 tsp fresh ginger, grated
¼ tsp salt

1. Place 1: of water in the bottom of a deep skillet. Insert a steamer basket and add the asparagus and carrots. Cover and bring the water to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium and steam for 5 minutes or until vegetables are crisp tender. (I actually did this step in the microwave for 3 minutes with 2-3 tbsp water).

2. Transfer to a serving platter and add the marmalade, ginger and salt. Toss well and serve.
