Did you know that roughly 130g of asparagus provides half of your daily folate requirements and all of your vitamin K daily requirement? So stock up on the asparagus!
Why not try making this lovely dip.
8oz cream cheese, softened
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 tablespoons red onion finely chopped
2oz Parmesan cheese, grated
How to make:
Put some asparagus in a pot of boiling water, reduce the heat to low, and cook for 3-4 minutes.
Drain them and immerse them in cold water.
Combine the Parmesan cheese, garlic clove, red onion, and softened cream cheese in a blender and blend until smooth. Pulse a few times to incorporate the asparagus. Bake at 180 degrees c for 10 minutes, or until the mixture is hot and bubbly and the top is slightly browned.
Enjoy your dip hot or cold with crudites.
