Stir-Fried Asparagus

One of the simplest stir-fries that you can make and the taste is awesome.  Usually available in Chinese restaurants and everytime we visit one we definitely order the dish. 

Asparagus is a powerhouse of nutrients. It is widely available in Spring and I make sure we get our quota of this gorgeous green vegetable. It is low in calories making it ideal for anybody watching their weight. It is also rich in Vitamins and minerals and can be eaten as a salad, steamed, made into soups or even baked and served with parmesan cheese.



Prep Time

5-10 minutes

Cook Time

10-15 minutes

Total Time

20-25 minutes

  • 1 bunch asparagus, cut into thirds 
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp chili sauce
  • ½ -1 tsp crushed red chili, optional
  • Salt to taste
  • 2-3 tsp oil
  • 4-5 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame, to garnish

Step 1
Boil water in a pan and add salt. Turn off the flame and blanch asparagus by placing it in the water for 3-4 minutes.

Step 2
Drain the water and immediately place the asparagus in a bowl filled with iced water. This is to stop the asparagus from cooking further and retaining its color.

Step 3
Drain the asparagus completely and keep aside. Heat oil in a pan, add garlic, saute for 1-2 minutes.

Step 4
Add vinegar, soy sauce and chili sauce. After a minute add the asparagus and coat with the sauce. This will take about 2-3 minutes.Top with crushed chili and sesame and serve hot.

This dish is slightly crispy.
Also watch how much salt you add as we are already adding while blanching and soy sauce too has salt in it.

The famous proverb "you are what you eat” as quoted by the French author Anthelme Brillat-Savarin is very true. Food nourishes you from the inside out. Good health is of utmost importance to me. Vegetarianism and Veganism are gaining immense popularity these days. Natural, organic, healthy and homemade is my mantra.
