🍽️ Serves 2
Difficulty rating: Easy
10-14 spears of asparagus
6 cherry tomatoes 🍅
Olive oil + pinch of salt 🧂
50g of toasted sesame seeds
For the Garlic sauce 🧄
2 garlic cloves
2 tablespoons of double cream (can use yogurt instead)
1 tablespoon of white wine or cider vinegar
2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon water
A pinch of salt
Trim the lower woody parts of the spears and peel off any darker skin from the asparagus spears, and tie them together with string - we do this because they will cook at the same time, and the tips won’t damage during the boiling. If you’re cooking a lot, separate the spears into batches of 6-7 before cooking.
Stand the asparagus bundles in a tall saucepan filled with salted boiling simmering water for about 3 to 4 minutes. Check them after 3 minutes – push the knife into the pulp of asparagus, and if you do meet get any resistance, and they are done. If not, leave them for an additional minute and check again.
Crush the sesame seeds in a mortar or in a blender.
Cut the cherry tomatoes in halves or quarters, mix them with 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil and a pinch of salt (you can also use a whole tomato, finely diced instead of the cherry tomatoes).
For the garlic sauce, in a mortar or blender, crush the peeled garlic cloves with a pinch of salt until you get a creamy consistency. Add the vinegar, mix for one minute, add the olive oil, mix 1 minute, add water, mix 10 seconds and at the end add the double cream, mix well and the sauce is done.
Time to serve 🍽️
