The British asparagus season is all too brief so it’s a good idea to make the most of it while these flavourful green spears are available from a local grower in Oxfordshire.
Fresh asparagus is utterly delicious simply boiled in salted water until tender, before being drizzled with some melted butter and sprinkled with sea salt, or with a dollop of hollandaise sauce.
For something more substantial, add a poached egg on top; our BLUE LEGBAR EGGS are full of flavour and omega 3. You could even soft-boil the egg and use the asparagus spears as soldiers for dipping.
Asparagus contains more folic acid than any other vegetable and is also a source of fibre, potassium and vitamins A and C.
