I love asparagus when it’s cooked right, and there are many ways that can be done! Stir fry is definitely one of them, as the asparagus can come out crispy tender. This Sesame Asparagus Stir Fry is a neat way to add some delicious flavor to your standard Asparagus Stir Fry. It’s also super easy to make!
One thing I want to note is Sesame Seeds. You can totally sprinkle some on your dish of Stir Fried Sesame Asparagus, but if you’re like me and don’t use it often AND don’t feel like buying sesame just to cook this dish, you can skip it – adding the sesame oil to the dish is what makes it sesame-y for me! Obviously, if you want some, don’t skip that step and add you some!
- 2 tablespoons coconut aminos
- 2 tablespoons sesame oil
- 2 large garlic cloves, chopped
- 2 pounds asparagus, ends trimmed, cut into 2-inch-long pieces
- (Optional) 4 teaspoons sesame seeds
In a skillet, add sesame oil and garlic and heat until hot.
Add asparagus to skillet and stir for about 5 minutes.
Add coconut aminos and salt as desired, and continue stir frying until cooked, for about a minute longer.
Here, you can sprinkle with sesame seeds. As mentioned, I don’t often use sesame seeds, and hate buying it just for the sake of this dish, so hence I normally just skip it, but definitely feel free to add as you see fit!
