What You'll Need
- 1 1/2 pounds fresh asparagus spears
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 3/4 cup water, divided
- 3/4 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 (2-ounce) package cashews, coarsely chopped and toasted (about 1/2 cup) (see note)
What to Do
- Snap off tough ends of asparagus. Cut spears into 1-inch pieces.
- Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add asparagus, and cook, stirring constantly, 3 minutes. Add 1/4 cup water; cover and cook 4 minutes or until crisp-tender.
- Combine remaining 1/2 cup water, the bouillon granules, and next 3 ingredients, stirring until smooth. Add to asparagus, stirring constantly. Bring to a boil; cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute. Sprinkle with cashews, and serve immediately.
In addition to your cooktop, your oven is a handy-dandy tool for toasting nuts. Place cashews in an ungreased pan, and bake at 350 degrees for 3 to 5 minutes.
