Asparagus has so many health benefits, it should be added to the healthy diet. Asparagus is great as a detox vegetable as well as having anti-aging functions. It helps reduces pain and inflammation and can protect against cancer.

1 bunch fresh asparagus, trimmed
2/3 c. water
1/4 c. MCT oil
1/2 c. grated Parmesan cheese
10 grape tomatoes, halved

Combine the asparagus and water in a 10 inch skillet and place over medium heat; cover. Allow the asparagus to steam until tender, about 10 minutes; drain. Reduce heat to low and return the skillet to the heat. Drizzle olive oil over the asparagus; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Add the grape tomatoes to the skillet and replace the lid. Allow to sit covered until the cheese melts and the tomatoes are slightly steamed, about 2 minutes.
