Char-Grilled Asparagus with Green Onions, Parmesan and Balsamic GlazePosted on: 30th Apr 2009
[inspired by Richard Leader of Superfood]
- bunch of green onions / spring onions
- bunch of asparagus (about 350g)
- 1 tbs olive oil or grapeseed oil
- Parmesan cheese (grated or shaved)
- balsamic glaze (thicker than balsamic vinegar)
- sea salt
- cast iron ribbed frying pan or char-grilling pan
- Toss asparagus and spring onions with oil, place on hot frying pan over high fire and char-grill turning occasionally until grilling marks appear and asparagus (on the bottom) is soft when pricked with a fork.
- Char-grilling will produce smoke, but this is very welcomed effect, so just make sure your windows are open and cooker hood on, if you don’t want to activate fire alarm :)
- Transfer ready asparagus and spring onions to the plate, sprinkle with Parmesan, salt and balsamic glaze.
- You may also use only salt, it will be still delicious…
Serves 4 people as a side dish.
It was the best asparagus I have ever had (!) Thank you Richard :)
Kids loved it as well, even the 3 year old but not the onions and balsamic glaze.
