This attractive side dish is especially delicious 
with seafood, and at this time of year can make 
good advantage of fresh local blueberries and asparagus.

Steamed Asparagus with Blueberries for One:

First break the woody ends off the asparagus.

In a steamer set in a shallow pan of water, place
the stalks of asparagus.  Bring to a boil on medium 
heat, then cover & steam for 5 minutes.  Turn off heat,
remove lid, and scatter the blueberries over the 
asparagus.  Cover and let stand for 10 minutes.
