This recipe is:

1 tbsp (15 mL) soy sauce

1 tbsp (15 mL) rice vinegar

1 tbsp (15 mL) peanut oil

1 tbsp (15 mL) water

1 tbsp (15 mL) tahini (pureed sesame seeds)

1 tsp (5 mL) chopped fresh ginger

1/2 tsp (2 mL) chopped garlic

1 tbsp (15 mL) SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, Granulated

1 pinch red pepper flakes

48 medium-size asparagus spears, trimmed, peeled and cleaned


In a food processor or blender, combine everything except the asparagus and mix until thoroughly blended. Set aside.

Cut the asparagus into two-inch (5 cm) pieces, on the diagonal.

Half-fill a large skillet with water, cover and bring to a boil. Add the asparagus and simmer just until crisp-tender (approx. 4-5 minutes). Drain well but do not rinse.

Transfer to serving bowl. Pour the sauce over the hot asparagus and toss to coat. Serve warm or at room temperature.
