I absolutely love vegetables that flower, from broccoli and cauliflower to zucchini and spinach. But of all the flowering vegetables, asparagus is easily one of my favourites. It’s such a seasonal treat with its fresh and versatile flavour and it’s absolutely loaded with essential vitamins and minerals. I’ve actually been known to eat asparagus raw by the stick, but I also love cooking it as a side dish and, with a great sauce as an accompaniment, asparagus quickly goes from everyday to gourmet.
I had a few different varieties of Silk beverage to choose from and I decided to use Silk Organic Unsweetened soy beverage to create a Dijon cream sauce for my asparagus. To really bring out the flavour of the vegetable, roasting it seemed like the best option. The result was a side-dish that was ready in less than 15 minutes, contained even more added nutrients thanks to the addition of the Silk Organic, and tasted absolutely amazing.
