As a kid the only time I would eat asparagus is when my mum used to stir-fry it with scallops. And it’s the same when I eat at Asian restuarants as well. It’s rarely fried on it’s own. Most of the time you would find vegetables such as pakchoi, choi sum or morning glory that is stir-fried in a garlicky sauce.
I decided to experiment with Asparagus as I really love this particular vegetable as it’s packed with so much goodness. Such as vitamins A, C. E and K. It’s also easy to cook whether you steam, grill, roast or fry it.
This recipes I have come up with is so ea-sy to cook! Won’t take more than five minutes and you can serve it with rice, noodles or even quinoa.
