Sesame Coated Asparagus with Roasted Sweet Potatoes
1 bunch Asparagus, ends cut
1 large sweet potato, coarse chopped, skin on
1 tbsp kosher salt
1 tbsp black pepper
1 tsp cumin
3 tbsp Olive oil
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tspn sesame seeds
In an oven-safe dish, combine sweet potatoes, 2 tbsp olive oil, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper and cumin. Be sure to coat potatoes well. Bake for 25 min, uncovered.
In a large or medium or large skillet cook asparagus with the remaining olive oil, sesame oil and sesame seeds over medium heat. Coat stalks well. Season with salt and pepper. Cook for 3-4 minutes.
Tip: Snap one of the asparagus stalks in half. Wherever it breaks naturally is where you should cut the ends of the others. To make it easier, align them and then cut.
