Burnt ends, Asparagus, beans, skillet

A delightful and comforting dish that's perfect for a cozy dinner at home. This recipe combines the smoky flavor of burnt ends with the fresh crunch of asparagus and the hearty goodness of beans, all cooked together in a single skillet for an easy, gluten-free meal.


  • 1 lb burnt ends
  • 1 bunch asparagus, trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1 can (15 oz) beans, drained and rinsed (black beans or cannellini beans work well)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (optional, for garnish)


  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add the olive oil.
  2. Add the burnt ends to the skillet and cook for 5-7 minutes, until they are heated through and slightly crispy around the edges. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
  3. In the same skillet, add the minced garlic and sauté for about 1 minute until fragrant. Add the asparagus and cook for 3-5 minutes, until they are tender but still crisp.
  4. Stir in the beans and smoked paprika. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook for another 2-3 minutes until the beans are heated through.
  5. Return the burnt ends to the skillet, stirring to combine all the ingredients. Cook for an additional 2 minutes to let the flavors meld together. Garnish with fresh parsley if desired.

Serve this warm and comforting dish straight from the skillet, making it a perfect fuss-free meal for four. Enjoy the blend of smoky, savory, and fresh flavors in each bite, knowing it's both delicious and gluten-free. Bon appétit!
