Asparagus with Garlic (Espargos com Alho)

2016-06-24 18.51.30.jpgAsparagus are probably one of my favourite vegetables.. I probably could eat them every day 🙂 they are incredibly tasty and easy to prepare.

This recipe takes 5/10 minutes to prepare and combines another flavour that I love – garlic.

  • 3 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 8 cloves fresh garlic, minced (to taste)
  • 500g asparagus, ends trimmed
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Fill a medium saucepan halfway with lightly salted water, and bring to a boil.

Prepare the asparagus, cut the bottom part about 1cm and discard. Slice the asparagus at a slight diagonal. Add them to the boiling water and lower the heat slightly to maintain a simmer for 2 minutes.

Drain the hot water and reserve the asparagus.

On a nonstick skillet or a wok, heat the olive oil, add the garlic stirring often for 1 minute, then add the asparagus, salt, and pepper, keep stirring until easily pierced.

Remove from heat and serve immediately.

PT:  Espargos com Alho
  • 3 c. sopa azeite
  • 8 dentes de alho fresco, picada (a gosto)
  • 500g espargos, retirar caules
  • sal e pimenta fresca moída

Encher uma panela com água colocar umas pedras de sal e deixar ferver. Preparar os espargos, cortar a parte inferior cerca de 1cm e descartar. Cortar os espargos em peças mais pequenas. Adicioná-los à água e deixar ferver em lume brando por 2 minutos, vão ficar apenas parcialmente cozinhados.

Escorrer a água e reservar os espargos.

Numa frigideira antiaderente ou wok, aquecer azeite adicionar o alho e ir mexendo. De seguida adicionar os espargos, sal e pimenta, e continuar a mexer até que fiquem suaves. Servir e desfrutar!

    That will be more garlic than we want, but we’ll adjust. Like Bernice, above, it took me many years to appreciate asparagus, but I’ve been converted. Thank you for the recipe.
