Sesame-Ginger Asparagus Light…

I think asparagus is one of those vegetables that you either love or hate. I personally love it! You can do so much with asparagus – I even eat it raw as a snack. Today’s recipe has some Asian flavor and flair. There are only a few ingredients and it just take minutes to prepare the tasty dish. Win-Win in my opinion…and it is Weight Watcher friendly!

Sesame-Ginger Asparagus Light…

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Yield: 4 servings

If you are following Weight Watchers: each serving is one point. If you add the Romano cheese add points accordingly. In my recipe I added an extra point for the cheese that I had on hand.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound uncooked asparagus, trimmed
  • 1 tsp ginger root, freshly grated
  • 1 garlic clove, minced (I use more)
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp toasted sesame oil

Instructions

Heat broiler. Combine ginger, garlic, sesame oil and soy sauce in a small bowl.

Lay out asparagus on a sheet pan. Coat the asparagus with the ginger and garlic mixture.

Broil until asparagus are cooked through - about 5-7 minutes.

I like to finish off this dish with some grated Pecorino Romano cheese and a drizzle of fresh lemon juice.

I especially love how low in Weight Watchers points this dish is, but it is loaded with layers of flavor. Another bonus is how quickly you can put this together – about 11 minutes total.
