Sesame adds a rich nutty flavor to this asparagus side dish - ready in 15 minutes.
lb fresh asparagus spears (about 16)
tablespoon dark sesame oil
teaspoon soy sauce
teaspoon wasabi paste
teaspoon black or white sesame seed
Heat oven to 450°F. Break off tough ends of asparagus as far down as stalks snap easily. In ungreased 15x10x1-inch pan, place asparagus spears in single layer.
In small bowl, mix remaining ingredients except sesame seed; pour over asparagus, turning asparagus to coat evenly.
Roast 8 to 10 minutes or until asparagus is crisp-tender (asparagus will appear slightly charred). Sprinkle with sesame seed.
Roasting brings out the natural sweetness and flavor of foods. You can roast any vegetable using the directions here—beets, potatoes and garlic are all great when roasted. For roasting times, go to bettycrocker.com.
