In this quick and easy recipe, garlic, butter and chicken broth enhance the delicate flavor of fresh young asparagus. And sesame seeds add just the right amount of "crunch".


  • 1 pound fresh asparagus, trimmed and cut in half
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted


  1. In a large skillet, saute asparagus and garlic in butter for 2 minutes. Stir in broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 5-6 minutes or until asparagus is crisp-tender. Transfer to a serving dish with a slotted spoon; sprinkle with sesame seeds.
