Asparagus with sesame seeds and soy sauce

By 1 No tags Permalink 0

This is one of my favourite dishes to make because it’s ridiculously quick, simple and healthy and goes well as a side dish, accompanying pasta or grilled chicken, and even on its own as a snack.

You’ll need:
A bunch of baby asparagus
A teaspoon of sesame seeds
Soy sauce
A teaspoon of olive oil


Put the olive oil in a frying pan on medium heat and wait until the oil is hot and shimmering. Throw in the asparagus and cook for about 2-3 minutes. Add the sesame seeds and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Serve with a dash of soy sauce. Simples.

    Oh yum!!! Ooh i highly recommend one or 2 drops (literally!) of sesame oil mixed in with the soy sauce before you splash it on :)

    also, the exact same recipe above goes with broccolini and pretty much any other green coloured brassica :) nomnom!!
