White Asparagus Pasta is a great way to welcome spring! A fresh and sunny dish filled with soft white asparagus, some lemon zest, cream and a touch of parmesan. White Asparagus Pasta is a great recipe to welcome spring. Asparagus is one of the first veggies that wants to come out in spring. Both the green and white kinds are actually the same, the only difference is the white ones never get to see the sun. They get picked up from the soil with the help of a sharp tool preventing photosynthesis. Its taste is more delicate and buttery and the texture softer than green ones. Preparation of White Asparagus The main difference in its preparation is that, unlike the green asparagus. You’ll need to peel its whole body (except the head) about twice. Because it’s covered with thick fibres which prevent the asparagus from getting tender. If it’s not peeled properly the asparagus…

Chicken breast with mushroom sauce served on black rice is an easy and smooth dish for mushroom lovers. Plus, the healthy properties of black rice are extraordinary!

Black Rice I like to explore more variations of rice, flour and pasta types.…

An extra vivid Green Asparagus Soup to start spring on the right foot. A simple soup made of asparagus, cream, broth, leeks and a topping of crunchy cured ham. Asparagus is the spring vegetable by excellence, although it became an all-year-long available veggie with globalization. A favourite of many, this long vegetable comes in many colours and forms, whether green, white or even purple.

The most common one, the green, is enjoyable in millions of ways, whether grilled, boiled or fried. In this case, in a Green Asparagus Soup! No Thickeners This soup is unctuous, as long as you don’t add too much broth or water. There are no thickeners, potatoes, eggs, or added starch; it’s simply plenty of asparagus. I’ve used chicken broth with it, but it could simply be water or vegetable broth.…
