i love asparagus, any kind, any way, I never met an asparagus I didn’t like! Hehehe, same goes for donuts!! 😉
This recipe is so simple and quick… And you can make it with roasted asparagus, blanched, steamed… Or with any other vegetable like zucchini, broccoli rabe…
I simply blanched them in boiling water for 2-4 minutes depending on thickness and then shocked them in ice water so they remain bright green and keep their bite. Nice and bright 🙂
Here is the fun part, the hemp seed dressing, super easy and good for you. Here is what you’ll need:
1/4 cup shelled hemp seeds
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/2 medium clove garlic, roughly chopped
1 teaspoons pure maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
1/4 teaspoon salt + pepper
small handful fresh cilantro
Place all ingredients except cilantro in a high-powered blender and blend on low working to high until smooth. Scrape the sides and blend again. Add the cilantro and blend for a few seconds until nice and incorporated.
Drizzle over asparagus and enjoy!
I enjoy mine with fresh crusty baguette. Nom!
