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.Print
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
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.
