In this home lab assignment, I made sautéed asparagus.
It turned out to look the way I wanted it to look. They were bright green. The taste of the asparagus was amazing. The seasoning put in it was perfect for me. They were all cooked evenly and perfectly. They texture was tender and crispy. This dish smelled wonderful. when I was cooking it, I put the garlic in first and waited for the sizzling sound. once it sizzled I put the asparagus in and salt and pepper in after.
I did not have a recipe for this dish. I just used what I had at home and decided to test out something new.
If I were to make this dish again. I would definitely try putting something else in it like slices of bell peppers to see how it would turn out.
Challenges that I had to overcome was that I didn’t know how long I should have cooked my asparagus for and I didn’t know how much seasoning to put in. To overcome these challenges, I decided to taste as I go, so I know if it was cooked to the way I wanted it to be and seasoned the way I liked it.
The greatest success in this dish was the final product. The presentation and the overall taste. In my opinion, I thought that the presentation of this dish looked wonderful and the taste of this dish was even better.
In this experience, I was most proud of working independently. Usually when I make something at home, either my sister, or parents helps me but in this one, I made it all by myself without anybody helping me.
