Fresh Green Asparagus (250g bunch)
Spring is here! Asparagus is a good source of folate, dietary fibre and vitamins C and E: make sure to a fresh bunch of them always in the fridge. (£6.45/kg)
Italy is a leader in Europe in green asparagus cultivation. Once they’re in-hand, however, the question then turns to how to eat or cook them. Simply steam, grill, blanch, roast, stir fried them or eat them raw. The best accompaniments for asparagus are extra-virgin olive oil or a little butter – in both cases, season with a little sea salt and fresh black pepper, too. Asparagus and eggs are a timeless spring combination too. Try dipping fresh spears into a softly boiled egg, or make asparagus soup and top it with a poached egg and a drizzle of sicilian extra-virgin olive oil.
