Asparagus With Ginger

Submitted by: LUVLHASA


Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1 bunch of asparagus, approx. 1 pound
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    1 teaspoon cumin seed (jeera)
    1 tablespoon minced ginger
    2 teaspoon lemon juice
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Directions

Method:

Holding the stalk at both ends, bend gently until it breaks on its own. Discard the hard portion of the stalk.
Cut the remaining asparagus spears diagonally into 2 inch pieces.
Bring oil to medium heat in a large frying pan that can hold all the asparagus.
Add cumin seeds and wait till they crack. Then add asparagus, ginger, lemon juice, salt and black pepper.
Stir-fry for about 4 to 5 minutes until asparagus are tender but still crunch.
Serve hot or at room temperature.

Serving Options:

1. Sprinkle shredded Parmesan cheese on cooked asparagus, just prior to serving. If the asparagus is warm enough, the cheese will melt and be delious.

2. Add 1 tablespoon sliced almonds half way through cooking the asparagus (step 5 of Method). This will make a beautiful presentation and taste great.
