Steamed Asparagus with Lemon-soy Dressing

Serves 1



  • 12 spears asparagus, hard ends chopped off
  • ¾ tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp rice vinegar
  • ¼ tsp ginger, minced
  • ½ tsp lemon juice
  • ¾ tbsp soy sauce



  1. Combine all ingredients except for asparagus in a small mixing bowl. Set aside.
  2. Steam asparagus for about 4 minutes or until it becomes tender. Remove to a plate.
  3. Drizzle sauce over the asparagus and serve.
  4. Sprinkle with white sesame seeds. (OPTIONAL)



  • If you do not have a steamer, follow these easy steps to steam: 1. Fill a saucepan with water to approximately halfway and bring to a boil. 2. Place a colander on the saucepan while the water is boiling (you need to use a colander which fits snugly on the saucepan without touching the water). 3. Put the asparagus into the colander and cover it with a plate, leaving a small opening to let steam out.
