Spring Recipes – Asparagus

Asparagus with Haloumi and Cherry Tomatoes

(a recipe my partner once made for me when we were first dating. He has never made it since. False advertising!)

Chop the asparagus into lengths, and pan fry over medium/low heat in some olive oil until lightly charred on all sides/to your liking.

Once cooked make a vinaigrette with two parts olive oil to one part (good quality if you can) balsamic vinegar.

Fry haloumi and some cherry tomatoes in pan to your liking, add to asparagus, pour over vinaigrette and add some basil leaves.

Asparagus with Lemon Butter and Mint (Jamie Oliver). Find the recipe here.

Serve with a runny egg and some avocado on spread over garlic-y toast. It’s wondrous what a little buttery sauce tastes like when you don’t often cook that way.
