Boiled Asparagus Spears Served with Cheese Sauce

This is one of my favourite ways of eating not only asparagus but also other green vegetables such as broccoli.


  • 300 g bunch of fresh asparagus spears (peel of any hard ends if necessary)
  • half a portion (or even less) of cheese sauce (skip the chive)

boiled asparagus with cheese sauce


  1. Bring wide pot of water to boil.
  2. Cook asparagus for 5 – 7 minutes and quickly transfer to the strainer, not to over cook it.
  3. Serve on the plate topped with cheese sauce.

Serves 4 people as a side dish.
