For when you've just had dental work and need something softer to eat but still delicious.....
1 3/4 cups arborio rice
120gms goats cheese, cut/crumbled in to chunks
1 bunch asparagus, stalks chopped, tips reserved
1 handful roughly sliced basil leaves
150mls Tanqueray Gin
Super easy to make. Asparagus is lovely with melted cheese and the capers add a piquancy which lifts the taste of the ordinary.
Slices of bread (sour dough would be good)
Slices of lime
Poppy seeds & sesame seeds to scatter...
Grilled cheese corn tortilla (instead of toast), with asparagus and ramps inside. You can see them peaking out!
What are ramps? Ramps are not just a way into a venue, that you need to climb, descend, or use roller skates for. They are veggies in the allium family. Their scientific name is...
Serves 2, Preparation time 10 mins, Cooking time 15 – 20 mins
1/2 kg green Asparagus
Pecorino cheese, grated – a handful
Mozzarella, to taste
salt and pepper, to taste
Evoo – Extra Virgin Oilve Oil, to taste
Wash asparagus and cut the final white hardest part of the stem.
The asparagus season has just started here. Do you like asparagus? The sweet, nutty almost sulphurous taste of fresh asparagus is so wonderful with buttery sauces and eggs. I know that white forced asparagus is popular in France (and I believe, Scandinavia). I've never been certan if it is...
White Asparagus grow underground covered with sheets without ever seeing the light of the sun, that’s why they are white.
They have a slightly bitter taste, longer and more fibrous compared to their more common green brothers althought they cook in the same way too. The thicker spears take a...
This mayonnaise is vegan and made from bean water (aquafaba) - the liquid from tinned beans. I used black bean aquafaba which gives the mayonnaise a pinkish mauve colour which I rather like (for a white mayonnaise you can use chick pea water). The white miso adds a savoury tang to the mayonnaise...
Making foams is great fun and much easier than some other ‘modernist cooking’ techniques. You will need lecithin powder and a stick blender. I managed to find some white miso which was nearly white in colour (a lot are more yellow or browny beige than white). The brown butter adds a nutty...
Its officially asparagus season in the UK, The season runs from late April until around the summer solstice in late June. So if you are in the UK you should be able to find UK grown asparagus in all the supermarkets.
I recently discovered this type of asparagus (which I had thought could only...
I wanted to make and serve these Puff Pastry Asparagus bundles with crustless quiche over the holiday weekend, but time got away from me.
Question... I don't like overcooked vegetables, but wondered if the asparagus should be (at...
Well we forgot to make the prosciutto wrapped asparagus "rafts" to go with one of our meals, so needed to use them in another meal and this is it.
1/2 cup diced prosciutto (about 3 1/2 ounces)
1 clove garlic, chopped
2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
1/2 cup dry white wine...
It does not always have to be the classic cheeseburger.
Here I would like to introduce you to a delicious combination with green asparagus.
The pre-cooked asparagus is wrapped in bacon and grilled. On the patty comes some Parmesan cheese.
When assembled, homemade hollandaise sauce...
Nothing crazy with this recipe. More threads is better :)
I had leftover roasted asparagus from last night. I like asparagus paired with eggs. I figure lets roll with an omelette.
4 spears of asparagus
slice of muenster cheese
ground coriander seeds
1 tbsp. peanut oil (canola or vegetable oil works too)
14 oz. extra-firm tofu, pressed for 30 minutes (you can use a tofu press), cut into triangles
1-13.5 oz. can light unsweetened coconut milk
1/4 c. red curry paste
3/4 c. vegetable broth
2 tsp. soy sauce or tamari
1 tbsp. light brown sugar
Here is a retro recipe from 1958. Although it is titled 'Casserole of Octopus', it is in fact a squid recipe as you will see from the recipe text. I pretty well followed it to the letter. It really was surprisingly good. Squid is subtle enough not to eclipse the delicate flavour of asparagus -...
Sometimes, experimentation in the kitchen leads to disaster. Other times, you can end up with something wonderful that you didn’t expect.
This started out as an asparagus soup. I decided to add some Indian seasonings to it rather than making it the way I usually do. That evolved into full-blown...
This is a lovely sauce to serve with fish, eggs or indeed, asparagus. I used it with some deep fried eggs in Kadeifi pastry - of which more, later.
Ingredients (serves 2)
12 green asparagus spears (not the really fat ones)
20g butter or other fat
20g plain flour
75ml semi skimmed milk or...

fresh-grated lemon zest
Steam asparagus spears. With a slice of prosciutto flat on your work surface, lightly sprinkle grated cheese and/or grated lemon rind. Starting at one end of the prosciutto, place...
