Tangy Crunchy Asparagus

I always wanted to try asparagus but never got a chance , when i came to US i saw this vegetable and looked up a recipe on the web and prepared this. I was very hesitant initially until i tasted it, it has a unique crunchiness and nice taste. I started making for family friends and they were also hesitant to try it but once they did they were hooked and begun to prepare on their own.

I later researched on the web and was amazed by it nutritional value. It is very high in folate and recently has shown to prevent cancer.

Hope you all will enjoy this recipe.

Ingredients:

1 bunch asparagus
1/2 tsp cummin seeds
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 black pepper
1/2 tsp grated ginger
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Cooking Procedure:

Cut into asparagus into three parts

Heat oil in a pan, add cumin seeds and when it starts to splutter add ginger and stir for a minute

Add black pepper, lemon juice and salt and stir for another minute.

You will get a nice aroma of ginger and lemon then add the asparagus
