Broth Braised Asparagus Tips

Course Low Residue Diet
Servings 2


  • 1/2 cup chicken or vegetable broth * if not using homemade broth, check ingredient label carefully
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • a slice of lemon peel I used a peeler and just took one piece off a lemon
  • 1 cup asparagus tips


  1. Bring chicken broth and olive oil to a boil. Add lemon peel and asparagus tips. Cover and cook on medium heat for 3-4 minutes until tender.
  2. Remove lemon peel before serving.

Recipe Notes

Only the tips of the asparagus are permitted under the Low Residue Diet. I reserved the asparagus stems and cooked them separately for the rest of the family.
