Did I tell you I was anti vegetables? Well just really green ones, If it was green and it wasn't curry then I was not interested in tasting it AT ALL.
"It's good for you" wasn't enough for me to indulge. I remember as a kid my mom would have to wrap meat in lettuce leaves for me to eat lettuce. I had no problems grabbing a carrot from the fridge and chomping down but once it's green, I'm running for the hills.
So asparagus was a major step for me to add to my menu. But once I did there was no turning back.
It is extremely easy to prepare. There is no peeling, no difficulty cutting (want to see me with a pumpkin earlier this week? The pumpkin won). There's no oven to light and no long waiting period to get it done.
The ingredients list is extremely short. Majority of these items should already be in your pantry. I try to keep my pantry stocked as possible with what I consider "basics" especially for me who would try to start cooking at 9pm. I try my best to stick with my pantry list so I don't have to make those late night runs to a 24 hr Walmart. Been there, done THAT.
The only thing that you may need to grab at the last minute is some fresh asparagus and ginger
With all ingredients in tow, this just requires sauteing on the stove top after tossing the asparagus with the other ingredients. This all takes about 10 - 15 minutes total.
And if you are feeling a little fancy you can throw some feta cheese on there.
There is nothing easier than this recipe. NOTHING!!
This is amazing paired with chicken, or fish. I paired it nicely with some curry baked chicken (coming very soon).
So dive in and enjoy this easy side. Great for the upcoming Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons.
