I always enjoy asparagus - and this is for other asparagus lovers. The carrots add a lovely contrast of color. And it is only 43 calories a serving!

Asparagus & carrots are two vegetables I think just about everyone loves (certainly everyone in my family, and they are particularly appealing mixed in this soy-based sauce. I wish I was able to post pictures because this is a very beautiful dish with its vivid bright green and bright orange. What a treat that they're healthy and low-calorie, as well. This will become a regular at my dinner table!
