Sauteed Asparagus with Sesame Seeds

Asparagus is one of those vegetables that I never know what to do with it.  I love it and I know I should eat it more than I do, but sometimes I have trouble deciding what to do with it.

So, I made this recipe that is super easy, and really good.  It gives a new spin on asparagus, and I think you are going to like it.

You only need a few ingredients and, of course, you will start with some fresh asparagus that has been washed and cut into about 2 inch pieces.  I think asparagus is best when the stalks are thin and somewhat firm.  You will need cut off the ends that are usually white and throw them out.  The rest of the asparagus is yummy.

I also make this recipe easy by buying the garlic already minced.  You usually can find it in the grocery store in the produce section in a small jar.  It saves a lot of time and is really good.

Next, you will saute the asparagus and then add chicken broth to simmer.  When it’s done you will scoop it out of the pan with a slotted spoon and add the sesame seeds.  That’s it, you’re done in no time at all and now you have to time spend with your family.
