Lemon Sesame Asparagus (CF, GF, V)
Makes a great side dish.
2 lb asparagus, ends trimmed, each stalk cut diagonally into thirds
1 1/2 – 2 Tbsp toasted sesame oil
1 1/2 Tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
2 Tbsp sesame seeds, toasted
Cook asparagus in large pot of boiling salted water until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Drain. Rinse asparagus under cold water, draining again.
Heat toasted sesame oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add asparagus and sauté until heated through, about 2 minutes. Add lemon juice and toss until well coated, about 1 minute. Transfer to a serving platter and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
