Asparagus and cream cheese dip

By Sue Bedford (MSc Nutritional Therapy)

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.


1lb asparagus

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.
