Asparagus With Ginger And Garlic



Stir-fry asparagus is healthy and simple to prepare, yet very delicious. It is a beautiful dish to serve and make as a side dish.


1 bunch of asparagus, 1 pound
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp cumin seed
1 tbsp. minced garlic
1 tbsp. minced ginger
2 tsp lemon juice
a1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper


Wash asparagus. Cut and discard the hard portion of the stalk. Cut the remaining asparagus spears diagonally into 2 inch pieces.

Bring oil to medium heat in a large frying pan and add cumin seeds and wait till they crack. Then add asparagus, ginger, lemon juice, salt and black pepper. Stir-fry for about 4 to 5 minutes until asparagus are tender but still crunch. Enjoy!

You can sprinkle shredded Parmesan cheese on cooked asparagus, just prior to serving or add 1 tablespoon sliced almonds half way through cooking the asparagus for beautiful presentation and great taste.
