For foolproof tender, snappy asparagus without the need to pull out a vacuum bag or heat up a big vessel of water, take advantage of bagless sous vide cooking in the Anova Precision Oven. You can use the same time and temperature settings as you'd use with a traditional sous vide water bath. Using full steam keeps the moisture in the asparagus from evaporating away, and the precise temperature control ensures you get perfect texture and vibrant color. Dry, shriveled asparagus is a thing of the past.
