Did you know you can cook asparagus perfectly with sous vide? There’s nothing soggy about these bright green, just crisp spears. With a little lemon and butter, this sous vide asparagus makes a delicious side dish!


  • 1 bunch of asparagus
  • 2 tbsp butter, cut into 4 pieces
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic butter
  • 1/2 lemon


  1. Preheat water bath (I like Everie containers) using immersion circulator to 180 degrees F.
  2. Add asparagus, salt, pepper, and garlic powder to a vacuum seal bag. Shake it to disperse seasoning. Add butter to the bag and spread evenly. Vacuum seal, doing your best to keep the asparagus in a single layer.
  3. Add the vacuum sealed asparagus to a water bath preheated to 180 degrees F and cook for 12 minutes.
  4. Once done, open the bag and shake around to evenly coat stalks in seasoning and butter. Squeeze lemon over the asparagus and toss again.
  5. Serve.


  • To keep the asparagus from floating while it cooks, you can weigh it down by placing a ceramic plate on top or check out my favorite new sous vide accessory: sous vide magnets!
  • If your stalks are super thin, reduce the cooking time to 10 minutes.
