1 can (14.25 ounce size) fat-free chicken broth
1 tablespoon Butter Buds Sprinkles
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
2 pounds fresh asparagus, cleaned and about 1 1/2" cut off the bottoms*


Spray a slow cooker with nonfat cooking spray. In pot, stir together the chicken broth, Butter Buds Sprinkles, and garlic salt until dissolved.

Put the fresh asparagus into the slow cooker. The asparagus does not need to be fully submerged in the broth. The steam will cook the asparagus. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours.

* You may need to cut the asparagus in half to fit in the slow cooker.

REVIEW: 4 star recipe rating
This worked great for some less fresh asparagus I had. I knew it was going to be a little on the woody side and thought the low cooking time might be just what it needed. I stood the asaparagus upright in my crock (small crock) and let it cook that way. Turned out great. I will do this again. I don' tknow that I would use really good fresh asparagus because that is so tender that you wouldn't really want to overcook it but this is good for less fresh or maybe even frozen that you want to try to make softer.
