We love asparagus in this house and this is a good recipe to add to our repertoire. I reduced both oils by half; 1/4 cup [4 tbsps] seemed a lot of oil for a veggie dish, especially with the cashews. I used the fresh ginger, and found the flavour of the dish to be excellent.

I thought this was just okay--I've had asparagus other ways that I have enjoyed much more. My husband really was disappointed in this recipe and thought it was a waste of good ingredients.

A delicious and pretty healthy way to serve asparagus. Although I followed the ingredients exactly, I made it a little differently: I tossed the thinnest spears in the pack into boiling salted water, removed them as soon as they turned bright green, and then immersed them in iced water for a couple of mins. I then basically just heated them through with the soy/ginger cashews. They turned out perfect! Thanks!

Update! ok, we make this dish about 2-3 times a week, and we ran out of ginger root, and its still good, and we usually dont put cashews in it. It's realllllly good- everyone loves it! We also make it with long green beans instead of asparagus sometimes--mmhmm! I really liked this dish. i had never made it before and i didn t change anything, except i didnt have a wok so I just used a large pan. My uncle doesnt like asparagus, but he liked this one!!! I thought it was great, and my family is having me make it for them now!! I loved it and I ope this came in handy for you!!!

I served this for Easter (35+ people)and have had rave reviews and requests for this delicious recipe. I tripled the recipe and found it worked out great... don't overdue the soy sauce as it could get salty.

Awesome. I am not a fan of asparagus, but it always seems as if my husband is buying it and wanting me to serve it for dinner. I LOVE this recipe. The only change I made was to cut the asparagus into thirds...a little easiert to eat. I used the stated amount of oil, just used a slotted spoon to take the asparagus out of the pan and left the excess behind. I am going to serve this dish at my next dinner party and when everyone is raving about it, I am going to smile and take all the credit. Sandy...you are my new best friend...and girl, you can cook!

This was very good, however I did reduce the amount of olive and sesame oil to 1 T each. Also, I used 1-2 tsp reduced sodium Tamari and 1/4 cup cashews. I did not feel like the dish was short on flavor. I will definitely make this again.

Hubby really liked this. I added just one little clove of garlic and just a bit of freshly grated ginger...he ate it up quickly. (Me...not a fan of asparagus). Thanks for the post.
