Sauteed Asparagus

sauteed asparagus
Simple stir fries are quite common at our place.  Everyone loves them and I like the ease at which such veggies are cooked.  Not much prep work.  Today I cooked sauteed asparagus with garlic and Cajun Seasoning.

Ingredients:
Asparagus - 1 pound
Garlic - 2 big cloves
Black Pepper Powder - 1/2 tsp
Cajun Seasoning - 1/2 tsp
Olive Oil - 1 1/2 tbsp
Salt

How to cook Asparagus:
  • Wash asparagus well.  Discard the thick woody part of asparagus and dice it into about 2 inch pieces.  Finely chop garlic.
  • Since Asparagus is a local American vegetable, I have no idea what its Indian names are.

  • Heat 8 - 10 cups water in a big vessel.  Bring it to a boil.  Add diced asparagus and cook for about a minute or so.  Drain the water.
  • Heat olive oil in a skillet and add garlic.  Saute for few seconds and add half cooked asparagus.  Add salt, cajun seasoning and freshly ground black pepper. Saute for about a minute or two.  Cook for few more minutes if you like asparaus little soft.
Serve Cajun spiced Asparagus with as a side dish with meals.
