From Easy Vegetarian, Ryland Peters and Small, 2007.
When I needed an accompanying vegetable dish, I turned to this quick stiry-fry.
The asparagus was cut in half and a little ginger was cut into fine sticks. These were stir-fried for a few minutes. Then some chopped roasted cashews were added with a little orange zest, some soy sauce and a touch of sesame oil. It only needed about a minute for this to heat through and it was ready.
While the orange zest added a nice contrast I found that the soy sauce and sesame oil were a little too strong for the more delicate flavour of the asparagus. Nevertheless, it was enjoyable and such a quick dish to make.
