" The soy sauce, ginger and garlic really compliment the asparagus. The original recipe was from the "Asparagus" website but they simmered the asparagus in stock so this is my version. I said this was a chinese recipe but that is really stretching it a bit!I use my mini chopper to mince the garlic and ginger Hope you try it and enjoy it"

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



The asparagus with the Asian flavours is awesome! Fast and easy to put together. I took your advice and wrapped it in parchment paper and cooked them for 8 minutes...the asparagus was skinny so didn't take anymore time than that to cook. DH loved it too! Thank you Bergy for yet another great recipe! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.
