Stir-Fried Asparagus

Rated as 4.62 out of 5 Stars

"'Here's one of my very favorite recipes for that first early-spring asparagus,' writes Marie Hattrup from The Dalles, Oregon. 'Stir-frying keeps the texture crisp but tender; lemon and soy sauce make for a light tasty coating, and the toasted almonds add a flavorful crunch.'"

Oh was this good! The combination of ingredients was a little unusual (soy sauce and Parmesan cheese?) but wow, did it all come together! This is so tasty I'll bet those who love asparagus never...

I left out the onion (which my son doesn't like) and the parmesan (which I didn't have) and my husband and I thought this was pretty good. My son wasn't so sure. I'd make it again, though.

This is a teriffic recipe! I DO NOT like asparagus, I have never ever eaten it before today. I was out of olive oil and I didn't have a lemon, so I used vegetable oil and a zesty lemon seasoning...

This is excellent. I love that I finally have a great recipe for asparagus that doesn't involve a heavy cream or cheese sauce! Thanks so much for sharing!

Nice flavor with a hint of fresh lemon. I think the almonds got "lost" so I don't know if I will bother adding next time. Hubby who isn't an asparagus lover, did like it this way. Not very prett...

This was pretty good! A nice healthy change from boring old steamed asparagus. Next time I'll add more soy sauce and more garlic. I didn't have almonds, maybe that would have given it the 5 star...

The other reviewers are right. The combination of ingredients seems strange but it is oh so tasty! The lemon juice is just the right balance for the soy sauce. I used tamari instead of soy sauce...

I enjoyed this. It was quick and easy too. Stir fried asparagus is great!

Mmmmmmmm....... Yummy yummy yummy. This is a great side dish, and this coming from someone who doesn't really like asparagus.
