Its asparagus time!

Postby mo! » Thu May 29, 2014 10:56 am

In Germany asparagus is a big thing. And now is the time of year. So i got some green asparagus (i like them better) and made a little pan of deliciousness.
I used:
a few green asparagus
a carrot
a chunk of zucchini
a bit of frozen spinach
a champignon
about 15ml oil
75g tofu
a spoon of coconut cream and a bit coconut water
100g brown rice
pepper, soup granulat, salt, ginger

fry the asparagus first (it should smell like peanuts 8) ), then the other stuff, get the seasoning and coconut stuff to it and e voilá ....youre done :)

edit: The green asparagus is really fun outside on a grill as well! Marinated on some aluminium foil and the result should be a happy vegan :)

Asparagus comes in a colour other than green? :shock:

I'm not sure if I just didn't know this because I was late in discovering asparagus but I swear I've never seen any non-green in the UK or Australia so maybe it's a German thing?

That is traditional German ;) ...and 95% probably eat it only this way. Making a huge fuzz about the whole thing. :roll:
It tastes different. Nice in a way, but i like the green fried one better. :mrgreen:

I don't see blanched asparagus often over here. (the spears sprout while the plants kept in the dark, I think.)
going to try fried asparagus tomorrow though.
been eating it most days for the last couple of weeks now, but just steamed for 2 minutes or less.
It's not what you do occasionally that makes a difference, it's that which you do everyday that brings progress.

Its how the asparagus grows. So when it peaks out it is still white since it hadnt seen any light and then tonns of cheap workers bend over and get them carefully out. I guess thats why its so expensive. At least the big and long ones. ;)

Its not a very pretty way of agriculture. :?

Those guys bend like that all day and their backs will be fucked eventually.


I'm quite curious now. According to the Australian Asparagus Council (it's existence amuses me) there's purple too though I think I might have known that and forgotten but they say white is rare here and it only grows Sept-Jan so I guess I can't go try it now.
