From Dom DeLuise. Serve this on a bed of lettuce.
- 1 lb fresh asparagus, trimmed and cut in 2-inch pieces
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Cook asparagus in boiling water 2 minutes, or until just cooked. Drain.
- Immediately rinse asparagus under cold running water until it has cooled. Drain well.
- Combine asparagus in a bowl with remaining ingredients.
Perfect way with asparagus! I did add a bit of sesame oil, a weeeee pinch of crushed red pepper, and some toasted sesame seeds to the dressing...other advice: double the recipe, make extra marinade, and use leftovers (if there are any) tossed with whole-wheat angel hair pasta.
This is a perfect recipe for any fan of asparagus! It was nice and crisp and the sauce was really good but didn't overwhelm the veggies. I kept his in the fridge for about 2 hours before serving. Made for Zaar Star tag game. Thanks Chocolatl! :)
I just steamed my asparagus a bit, and loved the mix of brown sugar, soy, and olive oil. This is so quick to make, I know I'll make it often! Thanks for sharing.
