Spargel - Food.com - Recipes, Food Ideas And Videos image

A traditional spring or early summer dish of sauteed white asparagus (spargel), drizzled with a simple warm hollandaise sauce. Pairs beautifully with light, simple spring or summer fare such as slices of premium quality cured ham (try Black Forest ham), sliced boiled eggs and boiled new potatoes served with melted butter and sprinkled with fresh snipped parsley. Or salmon! A nice glass of white wine (such as Riesling), May Wine, or Sekt bubbly rounds out this delectable meal! Prost! This is a great make-ahead dish. Note: White asparagus (German : Spargel) is very popular throughout Europe and is the same variety as green, only it's grown covered in soil (hilling) to prevent photosynthesis. This prevents the asparagus turning green and results in a taste a little sweeter and much more tender. White asparagus must be peeled before consumption. White or green, asparagus is a delightful veggie to be enjoyed at it's peak in the spring or early summer time!

Total Time 20 minutes

Prep Time 10 minutes

Cook Time 10 minutes

Yield 4-6 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 14

3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (or unsalted butter)
2 lbs white asparagus, washed and trimmed
1/4 teaspoon finely chopped fresh lemon zest
2 -3 teaspoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon white pepper (optional)
fresh snipped parsley, optional to serve
fresh small fresh edible flower, optional to garnish (such as violets or Johnny jump-ups)
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
4 large egg yolks
1/2 cup heavy cream (or whipping cream)
2 tablespoons lemon juice (to taste)
1/4 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard

Steps:

  • Warm the olive oil or butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the peeled and trimmed asparagus, lemon zest, and salt & pepper; stir to combine.
  • Cover and cook until tender-crisp, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Do not over cook.
  • Arrange on serving platter and squeeze with fresh lemon juice.
  • Prepare the Hollandaise Sauce: Cut the butter into four pieces and place in a 1-quart glass measure or bowl. Microwave, covered with a paper towel, on high, until almost melted (about 45 seconds to 1 minute).
  • Remove butter from the microwave and stir until completely melted.
  • Separate eggs, placing the yolks in a small bowl and setting the whites aside for another purpose. Beat the yolks well with a whisk or fork, then add to the butter and stir well.
  • Add cream, lemon juice, and sugar to egg mixture and stir well. Microwave mixture, uncovered, on high, until just slightly thick, about 1 to 2 minutes, stopping every 20 seconds to stir with a fork. Remove sauce from microwave and stir in the mustard.
  • Pour warm sauce over the cooked white asparagus and serve at once. Garnish with fresh snipped parsley or fresh small edible flowers such as violets or Johnny jump-ups, if desired.
  • NOTE: Sauce may be kept warm for up to 2 hours in an insulated container. Or cool the sauce to room temperature and refrigerate it in a covered microwave safe container for up to 24 hours. To re-warm, cover container with plastic wrap, pierce wrap with a knife to vent, and microwave on 50 percent power until heated through, about 2-3 minutes, stopping to stir halfway through. Do not allow sauce to boil.

SPARGELSUPPE (WHITE ASPARAGUS SOUP) | JUST A PINCH RECIPES



SPARGELSUPPE (WHITE ASPARAGUS SOUP) | Just A Pinch Recipes image

"'Spargel' is easy to find if you live in Germany, it is more difficult living in the US. German asparagus is low in calories and high in vitamins and minerals, making it a popular indulgence, although pouring Hollandaise sauce over it makes it a very substantial, special German dinner." If you can't find this asparagus in a local market, you may have to search online. I am told it can be very expensive, which would automatically make it quite a delicacy.

Categories     Cream Soups

Prep Time 20 minutes

Cook Time 40 minutes

Yield 6

Number Of Ingredients 8

1/2 cup(s) chopped onion
2 tablespoon(s) butter
1 1/2 to 2 pound(s) white asparagus, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces, heads reserved
6 cup(s) broth, chicken or vegetable
1/2 cup(s) half-and-half
- salt and pepper, to taste
- dry white wine, to taste
- parsley for garnish

Steps:

  • Make sure you peel the asparagus before you chop it into small pieces. The thicker the asparagus, the better for peeling.
  • In a 4-qt. saucepan, saute the onion in butter until soft. Add the pieces of asparagus, minus the heads, and steam for 5 minutes. Add the broth and boil gently for about 30 minutes, or until the asparagus is very soft.
  • Puree the soup in batches in the blender (place a towel over the lid and hold down the lid so the hot soup does not splatter) or with a hand blender and return to pan.
  • Bring soup to a simmer and add the reserved asparagus heads. Cook at least 5 minutes, or until they are fork-tender. Turn down the heat and add the cream. Do not boil further.
  • Taste and add salt and freshly ground pepper as needed. You may also want to add a few spoonfuls of white wine, if you think the soup needs acidity. Garnish with parsley and serve while hot.
