So happy asparagus are back in season (clearly I’m easy to please). I could eat asparagus for days. I love the taste and texture and I think they add so much to a dish but are also so good on their own. They can be poached, griddled, braised etc. but here’s my favourite way of eating asparagus.
Prep the asparagus by breaking off the ends. Place on a roasting tray and drizzle with olive oil and salt and pepper. Roast at 180 degrees for around 8-10 minutes depending on how thick they are, just until the asparagus begin to become wrinkly and tender but still have a good bite. Shake the tray every now and again to turn them while cooking.
I love serving them with a runny poached egg and even better with some added Parma ham. Great for breakfast, brunch, lunch and even a light dinner 🙂
