"This is a very quick and healthy vegetable side dish. Even my son, who is very picky, loves this. It works well as a snack with wine, as an appetizer, or as a side dish, especially for Asian-inspired dishes."

I'm always looking for new ways to prepare asparagus because I eat it quite often. This is quick, easy, and very flavorful. I like the Asian twist. I served this with grilled salmon and it was ...

Easy recipe. I subbed 2 T of tamari sauce for soy sauce. Way too salty and we like salty. I had very thin asparagus so that may have been the difference. I’ll try again with less tamari.

spot on directions, a nice change from the parm or lemon asparagus recipes. served with shrimp and crab delight from this site. good stuff.

I made this for my family this evening for dinner, my first time cooking asparagus on a stove top and it was delicious. I quadrupled all liquids to end with a little sauce to put over brown rice...

Superb! Garnished them with a light sprinkle of crushed red pepper flakes.

Added mushrooms. Soy gives it extra delicious kick.

Easy to make! I tossed in some sliced baby Bella mushrooms and added a dash of powdered ginger! Great over rice. I'll be taking this to work for a healthy meatless lunch!

Great flavor!

Easy and very good. I added some red pepper flakes while cooking, and topped the asparagus with sesame seeds when they were done. Very tasty, I will make it again.
