Asparagus and Onions
Asparagus spears, still slightly crisp, paired with onions and a hint of ginger
6-8 cups of fresh asparagus, washed and cut into 1"-2" pieces
2 medium onions, cut into large spears
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
salt and pepper, to taste
1. Put oil, asparagus, and onions in skillet. Fry on medium heat, stirring occasionally. After a few minutes, add seasonings and continue stirring to coat.
2. When asparagus is to desired tenderness (usually about 15 minutes), remove from heat and serve.
We like our asparagus crisp-tender rather than mushy. Be sure to taste a piece to avoid over-cooking! Use freshly grated ginger if you prefer that flavor.
When asparagus is in season, this is one of our staple recipes for preparing it. Besides being so tasty, it looks beautiful next to the rest of the meal! Rated: 10/10
