Sesame Asparagus

Yield Makes 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 large bunch asparagus, ends trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds (white or black)

How to Make It

  1. Use a vegetable peeler to trim any tough parts of the asparagus stalks. Pour about 2 inches of water into a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Add the asparagus, cover, and cook until tender, 3 to 7 minutes (depending on size). Drain and transfer to a platter.

    Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the vinegar, soy sauce, and oil. Spoon the dressing over the asparagus and sprinkle with the sesame seeds.
