A quick and easy dish that highlights best-of-the-season asparagus.



Preheat oven to 400° F.

Place eggs in a heavy pot and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil, cover and turn off the heat. Let sit for 12 minutes. Remove eggs, crack their shells and place them in a bowl of ice water for 5 minutes. Drain, peel and finely chop eggs; set aside.

Place asparagus on a baking sheet and toss with 1 tablespoon sesame oil, 1 tablespoon canola oil, salt and pepper. Roast, shaking the pan occasionally, until crisp-tender, 12 to 15 minutes.

In a small bowl whisk together vinegar, mustard, tamari and remaining sesame and canola oils. Stir in sesame seeds. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

To serve, arrange asparagus spears on a platter. Top with chopped eggs and drizzle with sesame dressing.
