Looking for a new way to prepare asparagus? A friend prepared this for our family, and it is now one of our favorites. It is best with the thin asparagus. This dish is great with baked ham.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine garlic, broth, soy sauce, corn starch, and sesame oil in a small bowl. Mix well. Set aside.
  2. Saute asparagus and green onion in olive oil for approximately 6-8 minutes, until crisp tender.
  3. Stir sauce and add to asparagus and cook approximately 1 minute until sauce thickens.
  4. Place in serving bowl and sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds. Recipe does not keep well, so make only enough for one meal.

Simple and tasty! I served with rice and marinated tofu. This sauce could really go with any vegetable - broccoli, snow peas, green beans, etc. I did find it a bit salty so next time I might cut back a bit on my broth or soy sauce. Thanks!

I loved this! I did forget to sprinkle with the toasted sesame seeds, but it was delicious even without them. This was very quick and easy to make, and tastes wonderful. Thanks for sharing!
