Cooking Stir-fried Amaranth with Asparagus

Let's cook another amaranth dish, shall we?

Cooking Stir-fried Amaranth with Asparagus

I had only known amaranth vegetables here in Thailand. In the Philippines where I am from, amaranth are one of the wild weeds that grow on untended fields. (No wonder, I'm not familiar with it.) More so, amaranth ("uray" or "kulitis" in Tagalog) are tough and hard back home. However, in countries where amaranth is cultivated as vegetables, they are soft and of the same texture as the spinach.

I have shared with you how to cook amaranth leaves in my past posts. Here, we'll be cooking stir-fried amaranth with asparagus. Like many of my home-cooking recipes, this one is an easy dish to follow.

Ingredients in cooking stir-fried amaranth with asparagus:
- cooking oil
- amaranth leaves, washed
- asparagus, cut in desirable lengths
- garlic, crushed and chopped
- tomatoes, cut in 4 halves
- shrimps, de-veined and cut in halves
- paprika powder (optional)
- Maggi seasoning
- pepper
- hot water
