Irish green asparagus with St Tola, radishes, lime, mint & parsley

Fresh, light, creamy and crunchy, here’s an idea for the last of our superb home grown asparagus.

For 4; 15 minutes preparation.

8/10 asparagus spears

zest and juice of a lime

1 tablespoon whole, toasted almonds

1/2 garlic clove (optional)

2 tablespoons fresh parsley chopped

1 tablespoon fresh mint chopped

Salt and pepper

Good olive oil

2 or 3 radishes

150G St Tola goats’ cheese

Steam or roast the asparagus until tender but firm.

Blitz all the ingredients except the radishes in a mini blender. Slice the radishes thinly.

Arrange the asparagus on plates, dot the goats’ cheese around their bases and garnish with the herb sauce and the radish slices.
