asparagus, cut into 1-inch pieces
grated fresh ginger
Very good, simple but different than regular asparagus. I made this exactly as written and was not disappointed. Sesame oil and seeds are a must--do not omit or change-- as those flavours are what make this recipe unique.
Stir-fried Sesame Asparagus Haiku: "This was just okay. Would rather roasted or grilled. Still, we're glad we tried!" Thanks for the new way to prepare asparagus as a side dish; the ginger and sesame seeds were nice additions (used only sesame oil - no peanut oil - and that was my only small change. For a side, we prefer grilling or roasting our asparagus; however, the flavors in this recipe would've been very good w/ the addition of chicken, onions and other veggies for an all-out stir-fry main dish.
This was wonderful with a great fresh flavor. I used olive oil in place of the peanut oil just because I didn't have any. Everything else I followed exactly. It turned out great.
so tasty just like it is... but I found adding some mushrooms and shredded chicken turned it from a yummy side dish to a quick easy main dish!
I love the nutty taste of the sesame seeds and the sharp ginger taste combined with the earthy taste of the asparagus! Great color and taste combination!
Excellent change for a veggie side dish we eat regularly. Don't omit toasting the sesame seeds. This is very good and I will make asparagus this way again soon.
I made this today for Easter dinner, and everyone loved it. I didn't have peanut oil, so used olive oil instead. Also, used 3 cloves of garlic, chopped, instead of ginger, since I'm not a big fan of ginger. I'll make this again, but I'll cook the asparagus in the sesame oil for more flavor.
Fabulous. A new "go to" recipe for asparagus. I usually roast asparagus but this was great -- and could all be done on the stovetop. Great in hot weather. Thanks so much for the recipe.
