Stir-Fried Sesame Asparagus

One of our favorite spring veggies is asparagus. There are so many yummy ways to fix it and we eat it quite a bit around here. I was looking for something a little different the other night and found this stir-fry recipe.

Stir-Fried Sesame Asparagus
makes 4-6 servings

2 Tbsp soy sauce
2 tsp sugar
2 Tbsp sesame oil
2 large garlic cloves, chopped
2 lbs asparagus, ends trimmed, cut on diagonal into 2" long pieces
2 tsp sesame seeds

Stir soy sauce and sugar in a small bowl until sugar dissolves. Heat oil in heavy large skillet. Add garlic and stir 15 seconds. Add asparagus and sir-fry until crisp-tender, about 4 minutes. Add soy mixture and toss until asparagus is coated, about 1 minute longer. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to bowl; sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve.
