To trim the tough ends off asparagus, hold one spear by the blunt end and bend the tough part back until it snaps. Trimming asparagus is a great job for kids.
1 pound asparagus, ends trimmed
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon freshly grated or finely chopped ginger
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Place the asparagus in a shallow baking dish. Mix the soy sauce, sesame oil, and ginger together in a small bowl, and pour over the asparagus. Toss the asparagus with your hands to mix thoroughly. Roast the asparagus for about 10 to 15 minutes, until bright green and just tender. Serve hot. (Makes 4 servings)
This dish can be assembled and refrigerated up to 6 hours before cooking, and roasted just before serving.
