Garlic Ginger Asparagus

User Rating 4 Star Rating (1 Review)


This simple asparagus stir-fry can be cooked in a skillet or wok.


  • 1 pound asparagus
  • 2 tablespoons salad oil
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced or pressed
  • 1/2 to 1 tsp grated fresh ginger
  • 2 tablespoons water


Snap off and discard tough woody ends of asparagus, then cut spears into 1/4 inch slices, cut on the diagonal.

Place a wok, saute pan, or heavy, deep skillet over high heat. Add oil to the hot pan. When oil is hot add garlic and ginger and stir once; add the cut asparagus and stir-fry for 1 minute. Add water; cover and cook until asparagus is tender-crisp, about 2 to 3 minutes.
Makes 4 servings.

The asparagus was wonderful with the garlic and ginger, but I think high heat is too much. The ginger and garlic started to before well before I was supposed to be adding the asparagus. I adjusted the heat and was able to save it.
