We really enjoyed this, even without the sesame oil which I didn't have. I used extra toasted sesame seeds to compensate, and fresh ginger. Next time I'll try it with sesame oil and will add some shallots and chilli flakes. We had it on 2 min microwave Basmati rice, and there was enough sauce to coat it. Will make again!

We liked this recipe - even my daughter who only likes asparagus "hidden." She said the spices & mushrooms offset whatever it is she doesn't like about plain asparagus. I used margarine & omitted the sesame seeds. Might be a 4 1/2...!
