Steamed Asparagus & Parmesan-Panko crumbs

By Angelika Hanna

A quick and healthy way to eat asparagus is simply steaming it in a steamer. It takes only 17 min for the asparagus stalks to cook soft.

I saved my leftover Parmesan-Panko crumbs from the oven-baked asparagus dish and heated them up in the micro-wave. They remained crunchy and made an excellent and tasty topping for the steamed asparagus.
