lb medium to thick
(don't try to use the thin stuff for this)
teaspoon sliced or slivered almonds, lightly toasted
, thinly sliced on the diagonal
teaspoons vegetable oil
Snap off and discard the tough ends of the asparagus.
Slice the rest on the diagonal (or, if you know how to do it, use the Chinese rolling cut).
Parboil for about two minutes.
Rinse in cold running water to stop the cooking process and drain.
(Can be done well ahead of time).
Heat the oil and toss the scallions for 15- 20 seconds.
Add the parboiled asparagus and stir fry on high flame until thoroughly heated.
Stir in the salt& sugar, then the almonds.
(Note: this dish can also be made with many other vegetables. Green beans work particularly well).
