Asparagus with Lemon Sauce is a relatively easy to prepare vegan recipe that can be served as a main dish, a side dish, and leftovers can be served cold on mixed greens and veggie salad. Preparation time is about 15-20 minutes, and cooking time is about 30 minutes.

Peel and dice the onion and place in a covered ceramic dish and cook in the microwave oven until the onions begin to become translucent.  The onions can also be cooked in a conventional oven at 350 degrees F.

Wash and clean the asparagus.  Cut into bite-sized pieces and add to the onions in the covered dish.  Cook until the asparagus becomes tender.

While the asparagus is cooking, add the cornstarch to the lemon juice and mix well.  When the asparagus is tender, add the lemon juice and cornstarch and mix well.  The liquid in the covered dish should begin to thicken and the "whiteness" of the cornstarch should disappear.  Heat for another minute or two to make sure that the liquid has thickened properly.  Remove from the oven and mix again.

Serve and Enjoy!

Vegan FlagThe above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
