Marinated Asparagus Spears are fresh and flavorful and only take minutes to make with a few basic ingredients. The Asian-inspired dressing compliments the asparagus without overpowering it. This recipe is naturally vegan and gluten-free.
Wash the asparagus and remove any tough stalks. In a large pan, add about an inch of water and bring to a boil. Add the asparagus and cook just a few minutes until tender and bright green. Drain and plunge in a bowl of ice water to stop the asparagus from cooking.
Drain the asparagus once it's cool and pat dry. Arrange on a serving dish.
Toss the asparagus with the rice vinegar and sesame oil. Let marinate for at least 15 minutes.
