"This is a very quick and healthy vegetable side dish. Even my son, who is very picky, loves this. It works well as a snack with wine, as an appetizer, or as a side dish, especially for Asian-inspired dishes."

I'm always looking for new ways to prepare asparagus because I eat it quite often. This is quick, easy, and very flavorful. I like the Asian twist. I served this with grilled salmon and it was the perfect meal. Thanks for the great recipe naturalbornhealer!

Good flavor, but not convincing enough for my kids to love it. I personally would make these again. I did steam them x5 minutes. They were a little too soft. I will definitely steam them for a little less time, as aldente is better.

I made this for my family this evening for dinner, my first time cooking asparagus on a stove top and it was delicious. I quadrupled all liquids to end with a little sauce to put over brown rice and it was perfect! My husband and kids loved it, we will be using this recipe often.
