Today’s recipe share is Asparagus stir fry.It is a well known fact that asparagus is a very healthy vegetable and has numerous health benefits .Did you know that among other health benefits, it is also a great source to reduce fat and can help with weight loss? Due to it’s rich content of soluble and insoluble fibers ,it keeps you full and avoid cravings when on diet. Also, it is worth mentioning about the Vitamin K, E and antioxidants it is rich in.It reduces bloating and avoids urinary tract infections as well. That’s indeed a big list of benefits of eating this  awesome green vegetable.

Normally asparagus is grilled ,roasted or baked. The recipe I have today is a simple Asparagus stir fry with very few ingredients like garlic and dried red chilies. This tastes really good ,the flavor that garlic lends to this dish makes it a favorite of any one who loves garlic. There’s an interesting fact about cleaning the asparagus.It has a hard stalk towards the end and many prefer to chop off an inch from below before cooking. It is eatable but removed to avoid the chewy taste .One can even peel of the skin at the bottom. I normally cut into a length of about 2 inches to prepare this dish .Hope you try this simple and tasty dish .I would love to hear how it turns out and happy cooking !

    This sounds tasty – and healthy 🙂 I never think of asparagus with my stir-fry. Instead, I would normally put broccoli, carrots and celery. I’ll try it!

      Yes that’s right Christy , I guess it’s not a regular veggie for a stir-fry. I also recently got this recipe and have ever since been making it this way!

    I love asparagus! Just picked my first garden batch of the year and it was a huge batch! I love that you put red chili’s in your recipe. I never thought about putting some heat into asparagus! Great idea!
