Spacer Stir-Fried Sesame Asparagus
  | Asymmetry | Cooking | Stir-Fried Sesame Asparagus |



Great way to get your friends to eat their vegetables. Green beans can be prepared the same way if there is no asparagus available.

2 Tbsp soy sauce
2 tsp sugar
2 Tbsp sesame oil
2 garlic cloves, chopped
2 pounds asparagus, trimmed and cut diagonally into 2-inch pieces
4 tsp sesame seeds


  1. Stir soy sauce and sugar in small bowl until sugar dissolves.
  2. Heat oil in a large, heavy skillet or wok.
  3. Add garlic and stir 15 seconds
  4. Add asparagus and stir-fry until crisp-tender, about 4 minutes. (Other vegetables may take longer.)
  5. Add soy mixture and toss until asparagus is coated, about 1 minute longer.
  6. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to bowl, sprinkle with sesame seeds, and serve.

Serves 4-6
