a great asparagus recipe for your starters or hors d'oeuvres


Here is a really lovely asparagus recipe that's just right for your starters or hors d'oeuvres. It is so simple yet with this delicate vegetable and the most amazing Hollandaise sauce it is transformed into a tasty first course fit for a king or queen!

Asparagus is easy to cook and will take you just minutes to prepare so your concentration for this dish will be mainly on the sauce. The hollandaise sauce is fairly easy once you know what to do and also what not to do, as it needs a gentle heat when making and not boiling. Get it right and you have a most delicious French sauce to accompany your asparagus as well as other vegetables you may like to try it with. It is good with broccoli too and this is a great idea if you want something to add to your greens and make them special.

To begin with simply prepare your asparagus and cook. When you are done, keep it warm and make your Hollandaise sauce.

A good tip is to prepare all the ingredients before you start to cook the asparagus, for both the sauce and the vegetable and in that way you are not letting your asparagus go cold whilst making the sauce.

You can see by putting these two great recipes together, you have the most amazing asparagus recipe which after all is really very simple – but it has big impact!
