The Best St. Patrick's Green? Asparagus with Honey Mustard Sauce!

Happy St. Patrick's Day! I love this holiday because it doesn't matter if you are Irish born or not, everybody loves to get down on St. Patrick's Day. Break out the green, search for a leprechaun, and eat lots of good Irish food. Instead of doing the traditional corned beef and cabbage this year, we're going to be having Shepherd's Pie, but we have to have a little green on our plates too, so I am serving it up with a side of this delicious Asparagus with Honey Mustard Sauce. We actually did asparagus last year too, so maybe I'm starting a new tradition here in the Mahoney household. 

Asparagus with Honey Mustard Sauce

I'm a huge fan of this tender veggie and eat it cooked plain all of the time, but you'll get a really amazing zing of flavor when you add in the honey mustard sauce. I'm pretty sure I ate more than my fair share of this delicious dish!

 

Ingredients
1 pound asparagus
1 teaspoon garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY MUSTARD

  1. Can't say I'm an asparagus fan, I tried being friends with it but it just did not work :) It is the same with olives. Some people adore them, some don't get their appeal.
    I do love me any green holiday, though! And rectangular plates as well :) And Irish hunks, naturally

    1. I didn't like it until I was in my 30s and now I love it! I have always loved olives, but not the green ones. The black ones we'll snack on all the time. Jason, my Irish hunk, usually gets me a black olive and mushroom pizza, which I do eat on rectangular plates ;)

  2. That is a nice way to spruce it up. I am a big asparagus fan if it's fresh. I grew up on canned so I thought I hated it. Go figure. ;)

    1. Ooh, I am not a big fan of veggies out of a can, so I can see where the ick factor would apply there. Fresh is always best ;)

  7. Huh. Now those are two flavors I would have never thought to put together. But now that I think of it, it seems like it would lend itself well to a pairing. I'll have to try it when my wife feels more adventurous then normal. haha

  11. Oh I LOVE Asparagus - and it's one of the few veggies my son adores. Normally we just bake it drizzled with olive oil, salt and pepper...nothing fancy, but that sauce looks yum! We are completely breaking the rules and having breakfast for dinner tonight. Haha - maybe we can dye the eggs green to make them festive. :)

    1. I usually make it your way too, but now I think I'll be adding this sauce from here on out. I kept going back for more! I love breakfast for dinner since I never make a hot meal in the mornings. Coloring the eggs is a great way to add a little green to your dish today :)

  16. I heard Krispey Kreme had green donuts today and my sisterlaw said the line was long as crap. Good thing I didn't go

  17. Honey mustard sauce goes great with anything. Now that warmer weather is just around the corner, let the grilling begin and prepare a large batch of honey mustard sauce for dipping!

  18. Well that's an interesting way to make asparagus for sure! Will have to give it a try since my youngest wants to try asparagus due to how it will make his pee smell (boys .. smh).

  19. Bacon is another good combination to use with asparagus. But this dish definitely has the color for the season.
