Asperges en vinaigrette

Just like the Poireaux en Vinaigrette (, asparagus with vinaigrette are a classic French starter.

Ingredients (for a starter portion – this will serve 2):

1 bunch of white asparagus (as they are hard to come by in Ireland just get them in a jar); 2 heaped table spoons of mignonette sauce (

If you have gotten the fresh white asparagus, cut the tail ends and boil them in a large pot for about 10 min, drain and let them cool to room temperature. If you have the jarred one just rinse and drain. Remove excess water with kitchen paper.

Serve with 2 heaped  table spoons of mignonette.
