With spring in full swing, I want to use asparagus in almost every recipe, which is funny considering I didn't like asparagus until I was in my twenties. And while I normally just roast it or throw it on the grill, lately I have been loving adding it to stir-fries like today's Lemon Pepper Asparagus and Edamame Stir-fry. I wasn't in the mood for Asian flavors when I created this recipe, so I kept the ingredients fairly neutral, just using a little soy sauce for the salt and umami flavors.You could definitely amp up the Asian flavors if you wanted by adding some fresh ginger, sesame oil, and Sriracha if you like things spicy. Paired with some brown rice, quinoa, or soba noodles and it's a delicious meatless dish.
