Asparagus and Sweet Baby Broccoli Stir-fry


  • Wash and drain the asparagus and sweet baby broccoli, then cut into approximately 1-inch lengths, discarding the tough thick bottom ends. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the ginger, garlic, and ground coriander.  Set aside.
  • Heat a wide heavy skillet or wok over medium-high heat.  Add the oil and swirl to coat the pan, and then add the onions.  Stir-fry until softened and starting to brown, about 7 minutes.
  • Stir in the reserved ginger, garlic and ground coriander paste.
  • Add the asparagus, sweet baby broccoli and sprinkle on the turmeric and salt.  Stir-fry for a minute to expose all the surfaces of the asparagus to the hot pan then add the water.
  • Bring to a boil, cover, and cook for 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Remove the lid and cook for a few minutes more (timing will vary depending on the thickness and freshness of the asparagus), until the asparagus is just tender.
  • Taste and adjust the salt if necessary.  Serve hot.
