PERFECT PARTNER: Asparagus works with meat, rice, noodles, or on its own.

We like this with steak, but asparagus is a great garnish for chicken, pork, fish or on its own with rice or noodles.

2 Tbsp vegetable oil

1 large knob ginger, peeled and finely sliced or grated

2 long red chillies, sliced

4 garlic cloves, peeled and sliced

Half of a medium onion, sliced


20 asparagus spears, stalks snapped off

1 Tbsp kecap manis

2 Tbsp soy sauce

2 Tbsp honey

1/3 cup chicken stock

Heat vegetable oil in a wok on high until shimmering.

Add ginger, chillies, garlic and onion and toss for a minute or two. Add asparagus, toss, then add remaining ingredients. Bring to the boil and stir until asparagus is just cooked and sauce has reduced to a glaze.

Serves 4 as a side.
