Dates may seem like a strange thing to include in a veggie stir-fry, but the little bursts of sweetness add a wonderful depth to this Sweet and Sour Asparagus! Think of them as a stand-in for the brown sugar you might find in a more traditional stir-fry sauce or Asian marinade. You can substitute half a tablespoon of raisins per date if you’d prefer (golden raisins would work too). Whichever route you choose to take, this dish is a wonderful way to get your family to eat their greens!
