Our family loves asparagus. When we were dairy farming in the late 80's, meaning, milking cows, our neighbors had an asparagus patch. We traded asparagus for milk. What a delicious treat. To this day, my children love nothing more than melted butter poured over freshly cooked asparagus. I have tried a few new versions and here is one recipe that past my families inspection. They are always asking for more.
- 2 Cups Asparagus, sliced into half-inches
- 1/2 cup of beansprouts
- 1/2 cup of red bell pepper.
- 1 Tbsp. of soya sauce
- 1 Tbsp. of sesame oil.
- 1 Tbsp. of sesame seeds.
- 1 Tbsp. of ginger, grated
- 1 Tbsp. of garlic, minced
- 1 Tbsp. of shallot/onion greens, minced
- Juice of 1 freshly - squeezed lime.
- In a frying pan, heat the sesame oil until it is smoking.
- Quickly add the sesame seeds, asparagus, ginger, shallot, and garlic.
- Stir-fry about 1 minute.
- Add the beansprouts and red pepper.
- Stir-fry for another minute.
- Remove from heat and add soy sauce and lime juice.
