It is hard to write an intro to a recipe when you are trying to watch Rescue Me on another laptop at the same time especially an episode with lots of ghosts. I have been dreaming and waiting for the perfect bunch of asparagus to make Smitten Kitchen's ribboned asparagus . I had the Asparagus, but not the patience to shave it into ribbons.Asparagus 1 bunch -washed, woody ends snapped off and sliced thinly across the diagonal
Garlic - 3 cloves sliced thinly
Red pepper flakes - a generous pinch
Salt to taste
Oil - 1tsp
Heat a wok and add the oil. Add the garlic and saute for a minute. Add the asparagus, salt to taste and chilli flakes and saute for just a minute and a half. Serve warm or cold.
