How to Make It

Step 3

In a small bowl, whisk together water and Vegetable Base until base dissolves; set aside.

Step 4

Step 5

Sprinkle asparagus with toasted almonds, serve.

Chef's Notes

*Toast almonds in a dry skillet over medium heat, stirring frequently, until golden brown. Cook asparagus just until tender and still a brilliant green.
