We’re in the middle of asparagus season so it’s about time we created a recipe to shine some light on this delicious veggie. There different types of asparagus, but for this recipe we’re using the green ones. Did you know that they’re actually the same. White asparagus are covered so they won’t produce any chlorophyll, which is what turns them green.
To create this dish we’re pairing the earthy vegetable with a creamy and spiced sweet potato mash. Topping it of with some fresh ingredients and smoky pan cooked chickpeas for some extra texture and flavour.
This spring time recipe will be one I’ll be recreating plenty of times. It’s easy, fun and filled with delicious flavours and textures.
As usual you can tweak it to your own liking. I for example add more chili pepper to the dish and also prefer to have an extra smoky chickpea by adding just a splash of liquid smoke while cooking. You could also try adding some toasted sesame seeds or hemp seeds like pictured above.
When you make this dish be sure to tag me on Instagram so I can see your recreations!
