Open Sesame AsparagusPosted by in Parchment Paper Packets | Sides
My father has an asparagus patch, so in the spring, we have lots of asparagus to use. And I am always looking for news ways to make it. Recently I decided to make it with a sesame flavor and was thrilled with my no-mess, no-pot results
1 bunch asparagus, trimmed
1/4 tsp toasted sesame seeds
1/2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp sesame oil
Place the asparagus in the center of a sheet of parchment. Drizzle oils and soy sauce. Sprinkle with the seeds. Seal and bake at 400 for 15 minutes. Allow it to rest for about 5 minutes.
The asparagus comes out nicely cooked with a light sesame flavor that really livens it up. My kids liked this a lot because to them it tasted more like Chinese food and less like vegetables!

I read “asparagus patch” to mean something like a nicotine patch, one that makes your pee smell funny. Sorry, that was crass, but this recipe looks yummy!
Love asparagus – and this recipe could not be easier. Thanks!
As a vegetarian, I love this! Going to try it ASAP.
So easy! I’m trying this one!
