I couldn't resist posting this since Asparagus has been a hot-topic lately...


Asparagus Stir-Fry

Prep/Cook: 20 min

1 cup Swanson Chicken Broth OR Natural Goodness Chicken Broth
1 tbsp. cornstarch
1 tbsp. low-sodium soy sauce
1 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 lb. asparagus, cut into 2" diagonal pieces
2 tsp. grated ginger root*
2 cloves garlic, minced
Toasted sesame seeds (optional)


MIX broth, cornstarch and soy sauce.

HEAT oil in skillet. Add asparagus, ginger root and garlic and stir-fry until almost tender-crisp. Add broth mixture
and heat to a boil. Cook and stir until mixture boils and thickens.

SPRINKLE with sesame seeds if desired.

Makes 4 servings

*You can substitute 1/8 tsp. ground ginger for fresh ginger root.

Actually I was just going to post a Sesame Shrimp & Asparagus Stir-fry recipe - but you can just add the shrimp and sesame seeds to this one!

Why wouldn't this be yummy with shrimp, instead?


(bought some asparagus at the market last night, can't you tell?)

I do almost this exact recipe except with scallops added.


By the way, I didn't buy any asparagus this week!
