The preparation of asparagus does is not long processing. Also, it has also earned the extra bonus of not going off my menu for months due to the very strong nutritional values that are beneficial to digestion, protect the heart and the blood vessels. After many games of trial and error and many combinations with other foods, I discovered three irresistible recipes for topnotch asparagus dishes!
Asparagus Cream Soup
With this easy to prepare classic, begin by cleaning a dozen asparagus stalks and cooking them in salted water. After ten minutes, drain the asparagus and add them to a mixture of finely chopped onions sauteed in a bit of oil, with added flour and water. You can add small quantities of cooked mashed potatoes to the mixture, in addition to spices, such as parsley. In order to obtain a creamy texture, it is possible to add some cooking cream, but personally, I add some millet or amaranth and a slice of toast for that, which makes my soup especially rich.
Asparagus risotto will satisfy a desire for a tasty and abundant but light lunch. You need to saute onions and garlic a the deep pan until soft. Add white wine and water, along with rice, a little at a time. When the rice is “al dente”, add asparagus, cheese, salt, pepper, and parsley. Mix all the ingredients and cook for a short time, then remove from the flame and add grated cheese and other spices, as desired.
Asparagus and Parmesan Cheese Salad
On a tough day, your palate will be grateful if given a light, but filling salad with roasted asparagus. Clean the asparagus, put them in a pan, sprinkle with olive oil, salt and pepper and spices like rosemary and basil. Put them in the oven for ten minutes or so, and then pour a pre-prepared mixture of parmesan cheese, lemon juice and garlic over them.
