Asparagus with Lemon-Soy Sauce

Treat yourself to fresh asparagus and celebrate a vegetable that full of vitamins A, B and C plus iron and potassium. It’s been a delicacy since ancient times, when the Greeks and Romans cultivated it. Today’s Spargel Fest in Germany and asparagus festivals in Michigan and California, to name a few, are annual rites of spring. This recipe uses Asian flavors with a spritz of lemon to add zing.

Ingredients

1 1/4 lbs. thin asparagus stalks, ends trimmed and cut diagonally into 1 1/2-inch lengths
8 whole scallions, trimmed to include a little green
1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1/4 tsp. fresh ginger, minced
5 scallions, trimmed to include a little green, minced and divided in 2 batches
1/2 cup fat-free, reduced-sodium MSG-free chicken broth
1 Tbsp. rice vinegar
1 tsp. reduced-sodium soy sauce*
1/2 tsp. raw organic honey or raw organic sugar
Freshly ground-black pepper
1 tsp. lemon juice, or to taste

**Make sure that your soy sauce uses organic GMO-free fermented soy. Or, make your own soy-free soy sauce substitute using one of these recipes:

(As always, choose organic content and fresh content as much as possible for the healthiest recipe.)

Instructions

1. Steam asparagus and the whole scallions in a steam basket over boiling water (or in the microwave, with a small amount of water) until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Rinse under running cold water to stop the cooking and set color. Drain and cool.

2. To make the dressing, heat oil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Add ginger and stir until it begins to color. Add half the minced scallions and cook a few seconds. Add broth, vinegar, soy sauce and honeyor sugar. Set aside.

3. Just before serving, place the remaining minced scallions in a large bowl. Add steamed asparagus and scallions. Bring the dressing to a boil over medium-high heat. Let boil 30 seconds. Gradually stir in pepper and lemon juice, tasting, to achieve an appealing tart and peppery flavor. Toss the vegetables with the dressing.

Makes 4 servings.
