It was an impulse buy that needs used up.

Plain steamed with loads of hollandaise or mayo. Can't wait for asparagus season.

HermioneJeanGranger Mon 20-Mar-17 17:56:42

Wrapped in bacon with hollandaise sauce and a poached egg.

Lightly fried in butter.

I saute with butter and a bit of olive oil, then toss in parmesan.

Griddle pan very lightly so it's still crunchy

Asparagus. How middle class of you. Are they from Waitrose?

Expect to get flamed....along with your asparagus.

Roasted until crispy in olive oil and salt - served with a squeeze of lemon

Wrapped in bacon, roasted in the oven.

TuddlesAndSisses Mon 20-Mar-17 18:13:09

Mmmm!! Hot griddle pan, charred lines on the outside but still crunchy. Nothing worse than soggy flaccid over-boiled asparagus. Amazing wrapped in pancetta served with a poached egg and some hollandaise

AdaColeman Mon 20-Mar-17 18:20:42

Steamed, then served with a couple of fried (in butter) quail's eggs.


Served instead of toast with a very soft boiled egg.

ememem84 Mon 20-Mar-17 18:22:21

Wrap in ham or bacon cover with grated cheese. Grill.

Thewoodenspoon Mon 20-Mar-17 18:27:56

Roasted in olive oil with garlic, new potatoes and halloumi.... yum yum..

MelanieCheeks Mon 20-Mar-17 18:29:05

Steamed - you can approximate in a microwave. And then dipped into soft boiled egg.

Is asparagus considered posh? I'm as common as owt and have it loads when it's in season. Roasted with oil and pepper for me

calamaribanari Mon 20-Mar-17 18:29:37

Thank you! I'll check to see what else we've got in the cupboards before committing to one of these suggestions.

Roughly how long should I be roasting / sautéing / steaming / griddling?

MissAdaSmith Mon 20-Mar-17 18:30:52

slightly simmered or steamed. and then drowned in butter with some parmesan on top. yummy

CointreauVersial Mon 20-Mar-17 18:32:32

Steam, then drench in melted butter.

Or dip into a runny boiled egg. Mmmm....

I'm from the Vale of Evesham, so used to eat it by the ton when it was in season. GPs had a huge asparagus bed in their garden.

Griddled with olive oil. If it's from Peru though it won't taste of much, sorry!

Wrapped in prosciutto
Pan fried on olive oil

Asparagus is middle class? What a bloody stupid statement to make.

It's more expensive than cabbage, that's true, but it's on sale in every supermarket.

Batteriesallgone Mon 20-Mar-17 18:35:02

Either flash fry very quickly with olive oil and drenched in lemon


Roasted with loads of salt
