Spring is the beginning of asparagus season and it gets us excited for the many ways to use this luxurious vegetable which is ridiculously cheap at the beginning of the season.

Perfect for preparing ahead

You can prepare these babies a day or two ahead. Simply cover tightly with cling wrap and remove from the fridge half an hour before serving.

If blue cheese doesnʼt float your boat 

Swap out the blue cheese for the following:

  • tangy goats cheese with some semi dried tomatoes mixed through it
  • soft cream cheese mixed with a healthy amount of finely sliced chives and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice
  • shaved parmesan cheese
  • sliced swiss cheese
  • Boursin cheese (that delicious little round of cream cheese mixed with garlic and herbs from France)…..so moreish!

Prosciutto or jamon 

Try to get your prosciutto or jamon sliced at the deli rather than buying those ridiculously expensive pre sliced packets. It works out way cheaper to have it sliced for you.
