This recipe was one of my Aunt Ely's favorite veggy dishes to make for her family. I hope you enjoy it as much as we have. This recipe is also in my family's cookbook, the one I revised 2 yrs ago for our family reunion.
My grandmother grew up on a farm, and in her day many vegetables were served in cream or milk. I have never seen asparagus served this way in any other home, but it is one of my favorites when fresh asparagus is in season. The amounts of ingredients are just a guess, and you can adjust them depending on how much asparagus you want to prepare.
These tasty little appetizers are perfect for anything from a treat at home to elegant party nibbles. It will always be Jenny W.'s recipe to me, a lovely woman I worked with when I first came to New Zealand. She used to make them for morning tea, something I had never experienced before - a tea break where you actually talk to your workmates and share food. Brilliant idea! She shared this recipe with me and I've passed it on several times. It's always a hit. So Jenny W., if you see this and recognise your recipe, get in touch with me.
Spring asparagus, fresh garlic with a bunch of fresh thyme from the garden topped with butter and olive oil, coarse salt and fresh cracked pepper. This is served hot but is good a room temp as well.Vegans can use all olive oil.
I haven't tried this yet, but it came to my inbox today and I wanted to share it. It looks like a creamy and delicious soup, and I didn't even have to modify much to make it dairy-free. I love the additions of yogurt, lemon, and parmesan cheese! It's from Nanook at Allrecipes.com.
This is something I have made for years. My hubby loves it and my picky 7 year old requests it often. It is so easy but tastes harder. You can also easily double the recipe. This is one of my favorites!
