Asparagus with Almond & Sun-dried Tomato Sauce


Asparagus with almond & sun-dried tomato sauce

This lovely dish of asparagus with almond and sun-dried tomato sauce is super easy and quick to prepare. All you need is some beautiful, fresh asparagus or any other green crunchy vegetables, some blanched almonds and semi-dried or sun-dried tomatoes.

You can make extra sauce and use it as a condiment with some yummy turkey wraps or as a dip. Asparagus is widely available in spring but you will find it in most grocers and supermarkets throughout the year.

Asparagus with Almond & Sun-dried Tomato Sauce

  • Author: Irena Macri | Eat Drink Paleo



2 bunches of fresh asparagus

1/2 cup blanched almonds 

1 tbsp chopped semi-dried tomatoes (you can substitute with sun-dried tomatoes)

2 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp lemon juice

2 tbsp water

1/2 tsp salt

Cracked pepper


Bring a medium pot of water to a boil.

Process all sauce ingredients in a blender or a food processor until pureed and blended together. I like to leave it slightly coarse so you have some texture.

Cook asparagus in boiling water for 1 minute. Drain and serve on a plate with the sauce poured over the top.

  1. Hi Irena, thanks for this great looking recipe, I’m going to try it! I’ve yet to come off an incredibly restrictive diet (SCD) so it’s hard to find recipes that I actually like the sound of that fit within what I can eat!

    Thanks again! :)
