SESAME SEARED ASPARAGUS – delicious vegetable recipe to serve as a side or an appetizer
Asparagus are a very delicate vegetable. Overcook them and you’ll get a stringy brownish veggie. Undercook them and they’ll be hard to digest and won’t be super tasty. I like my asparagus three ways: seared, broiled or boiled. In this recipe we’ll make sesame seared asparagus.
I decided to add some flavors with the sesame and ginger mix but you can use only a neutral oil such as avocado oil and make them plain. However I have to insist on how tasty they are with the sesame ginger mix. It’s worth a try!
- 10-15 green asparagus, bottom trimmed
- 1 tbsp avocado oil
- 2 tbsp sesame oil
- 1 tbsp fresh grated ginger
- salt and pepper to taste
- herbs to decor such as mint and basil
- tomatoes and sesame seeds to top
- Mix sesame oil, avocado oil, ginger and seasoning in a bowl.
- Heat a sautee pan and add half of the mixed oil.
- When the oil is grizzling, add the asparagus and make sure they all touch the bottom of the pan. You might need to make this process twice.
- Cover and let sit for 3-4 minutes to have your asparagus slightly tender but still very crunchy. Add two minutes if you like them more well done.
- Serve warm or at room temperature. Decorate with herbs and fresh tomatoes.
