A Celebration of Super Free Food: White Asparagus

I really like asparagus so when presented with a bag of white asparagus for only 64p I had to try it. Because I was success expressing and because it was such a treat ( even though it was cheap) I wanted to make it the main part of my meal.

Having already used up my syns for that day hollandaise sauce was out of the question so I opted for a poached egg. I simply steamed the asparagus and topped with a dippy egg. The asparagus dipped in the egg yolk was amazing.

I did a search for asparagus recipes but the ones I found were really high in fat and calories (and therefore syns), does any one do anything interesting with asparagus that elevates it from side dish but keeps it low syn?

  1. I make a potato salad which includes asparagus – boil some waxy potatoes and add chopped asparagus, fine green beans and sugar snap peas for the last 3-4 minutes of the cooking time. Drain and add a syn free salad dressing/vinaigrette whilst all the ingredients are still piping hot. Gorgeous hot or cooled and totally free on green or EE
