We love asparagus, this is another very simple way to make it. You may also use sesame oil and sesame seeds for a different variation. Easy to double or triple recipe.


  1. Clean asparagus and snap off tough ends, leave whole.
  2. Heat skillet and olive oil (use skillet with lid).
  3. Add asparagus and cook on medium-low heat (so that asparagus doesn't burn) Turning asparagus occasionally.
  4. Add garlic and salt to taste, Cook asparagus to tender crisp.
  5. serve.

Yum! I love asparagus in any form. I love to stir-fry it because it's so quick and simple. I didn't leave it whole, but cut it into sections to make the stir-fry a little easier. Thanks Barb for a great keeper. Made for All You Can Cook Buffet special.
