      Amazing from the git-go. How in the world could you ever, ever go wrong with all the flavors and combination of asparagus and black bean sauce, with a sprinkle of cashews? I followed this exactly and what a treat this is. So easy, you won't believe it. The sauce is simply heavenly. You will want to just eat the sauce. I am absolutely sure about this. I can say you can put it on everything from chicken, to veggies, to salmon, or just spoon it in a cup and enjoy :) Seriously, a great, great recipe that I would highly recommend from the grand taste, and the ease. Made for *flower power* Everyday Tag May 2009

      WAYYYYY too salty, even after using lower sodium soy sauce. I rinsed the food to make it palatable. I have to admit, hubby and I don't use much salt. Next time I make it, I'm going to try using only 1/4 cup of black bean sauce and leave out the soy sauce. The black bean sauce has enough salt in it.

      This was pretty good thanks Deb, our only complaint was it was a bit too salty for us. I would suggest using a low-sodium soy if you don't eat much salt as there s still plenty in the black bean sauce. The asparagus and spring onions cooked up perfectly tender crisp following your great instructions and the cashews were a lovely finish to the dish.
