BEFORE BOILING:

Frozen asparagus remove just before cooking, not defrosted.

BOILING:

Asparagus put in the pot (vertically, you can tie a cotton thread) with a small amount of boiling salted water (approx. 2 teaspoons to 1 liter of water). It is also slightly sweetened (approx. 1 teaspoon per 1 liter of water). Green asparagus cook for 3-5 minutes. White asparagus cook longer - for 8-10 minutes. Time start to count from the time of re-boil water. In the middle of the cooking water you can add milk. Boil under cover - this shortens the processing time and reduces the loss of vitamins. To see if asparagus is already cooked, you can stick a fork or a knife. If it falls softly, they are ready.

ONCE BOILED:

After cooking, drain off the asparagus. After boiling water containing nutrients can be used for sauces, soups, etc.

SERVING TIPS:

Giving, sprinkle with browned breadcrumbs and pour melted butter or olive oil.

Bon appétit!
