Asparagus with Wasabi-Soy Dipping Sauce

Here is another great recipe from Daria who blogs at Mom In Management.

I have always been a huge fan of wasabi. I love the kick it has! I think Daria’s Wasabi-Soy Dipping Sauce is going to make it’s way into a regular rotation at our house. Because aside from loving wasabi, there’s nothing I love better than a good dipping sauce. I’ve even been known to order certain appetizers from restaurants just because of the great dipping sauces they are served with.

When I first saw Daria’s recipe, I thought that serving it with asparagus was genius. It’s a great way to mask some of that asparagus flavor! (Yes, I’ll admit that asparagus and I are not on the best of terms most of the time.) I think I’d love it served with some steamed or roasted fresh green beans also. Or for a real treat, that wasabi would perfectly complement my Tempura Fried Green Beans.

Asparagus with Wasabi Soy Sauce

Sauce Ingredients:

  • ¾ Cup of Mayonaisse
  • Squeeze of Wasabi
  • 1 to 2 Tablespoons of Soy Sauce

Snap the ends off of your asparagus stems before steaming them.  They will naturally break at the tough/tender line.

Steam the asparagus for about 4 to 5 minutes until they are tender to poke with a fork, but not too mushy.  They will usually turn a brilliant shade of green when they are done.  Then Serve.

Best of all?  My kids love it!  It’s finger food after all…

  1. We usually just cook our asparagus in some chicken broth, but this looks much better. With a sauce like that, I think my family would definitely be double dipping.

  2. Yep, the kids definitely double dip! It is SO easy to make and is a hit for dinner parties and potlucks too. Sometimes it’s hard to think of veggies to bring to a potluck – but this one works cold or warm, so is usually my favorite contribution.

    I haven’t tried it with other veggies, but tempura fried green beans sound divine!

    I’ll be trying Kate’s recipe for those for sure!
