Sesame Asparagus Stir Fry

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!

Health Benefits

What else I love about asparagus is that it’s very nutritious. Asparagus is super good source of fiber, folate, vitamins A, C, E and K! Those are all some great immune boosting vitamins, by the way.

Vitamin A – Vitamin A is highly important for human health. They’re essential for many processes in your body, including maintaining healthy vision, and making sure the normal function of your immune system and organs.

Vitamin C – This vitamin is necessary for the growth, development and repair of all body tissues. It’s involved in the formation of collagen, absorption of iron, the immune system, wound healing, and the maintenance of cartilage, bones, and teeth.

Vitamin E – Vitamin E prevents coronary heart disease, supports immune function, prevents inflammation, promotes eye health, and lowers the risk of cancer.

Vitamin K – Vitamin K is an important factor in bone health and wound healing and plays a role in blood clotting, bone metabolism, and regulating blood calcium levels.

Add coconut aminos and salt as desired, and continue stir frying until cooked, for about a minute longer.
