Directions:

  1. Rinse the asparagus under cool running water, and snap off the tough stem ends. Arrange the asparagus spears in a microwave or conventional steamer. Cover and cook on high power or over medium-high heat for about 4 minutes, or just until the spears are crisp-tender. Transfer to a serving dish.
  2. While the asparagus are cooking, place all of the sauce ingredients in a 1-quart saucepan, and stir to mix well. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, just until the sauce is heated through. Alternatively, place the sauce in a microwave-safe bowl, and microwave uncovered on high power for 1 to 2 minutes, or just until heated through. Add a few teaspoons of water if the sauce seems too thick.
  3. Drizzle the sauce over the asparagus, and serve hot.
