When asparagus season starts, we all excitedly gobble up raw or lightly steams spears. Soon there will be so much asparagus we will be searching for new ideas! Here is a simple stir-fry idea.
Cook asparagus in a large pot of frying pan of boiling water till crisp-tender, about 3-5 minutes.
Drain and rinse asparagus under cold water. Drain well.
Heat vegetable oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add bell pepper and stir 1 minute.
Add asparagus and sauté till heated through, about 2 minutes. Add soy sauce and sesame oil.
Toss till asparagus and bell pepper are coated well.
Transfer to platter and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
To toast sesame seeds, place them in a toaster over on a metal pan and toast 1-2 cycles, till lightly browned and popping.
Alternatively, place in a frying pan over medium heat and cook, stirring, till lightly browned and popping.
