Asparagus Sauteed in Garlic and Soy Sauce

Cook time: 15 minutes.


  • 1 bunch of fresh asparagus spears

  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Sesame seeds for garnish (optional)


  1. Prepare the Asparagus: Wash the asparagus spears thoroughly and trim off the tough ends. You can snap them off at their natural breaking point or use a knife to trim about an inch from the ends.

  2. Saute Garlic: In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add minced garlic and sauté until it becomes fragrant, but be careful not to let it brown.

  3. Add Asparagus: Place the trimmed asparagus spears into the skillet. Toss them around to coat with the garlic-infused oil.

  4. Season with Soy Sauce: Pour soy sauce over the asparagus. Continue to sauté, tossing the asparagus occasionally to ensure even cooking.

  5. Cook Until Tender: Cook the asparagus for about 5-7 minutes or until they are tender but still crisp. Cooking time may vary based on the thickness of the asparagus spears.

  6. Season with Salt and Pepper: Season the dish with salt and pepper to taste. Remember that soy sauce already contains salt, so adjust according to your preference.

  7. Garnish and Serve: Optionally, garnish with sesame seeds for added texture and flavor.

  8. Serve Hot: Once the asparagus is cooked to your liking, transfer them to a serving plate and serve immediately while hot.

This Asparagus Sauteed in Garlic and Soy Sauce makes for a delicious and healthy side dish. Enjoy your meal!
