You are fully invited to roll your eyes at the simplicity of this recipe. It even is recipe:. It’s more like a cover-up, a way to transport asparagus from the market to a table I’ve been obsessed with for over a year.

Here’s what makes it perfect. I like fried, fried, grilled asparagus, especially when the spears are hot, have cracked, charred spots, a mixture of tissues. But each of these methods has a small drawback – it’s time. Roasted և grilled asparagus is surprisingly warm from the fire, but after a while it gets a little wet. Still good, of course, but the more it goes down, the longer you wait to eat it. Pouring asparagus և into an icy water bath preserves this wonderfully cooked, crispy, tender, bright green moment… for days.

This boiled, frozen asparagus waits patiently until you are ready, and when you are ready, you simply pour it into a plate. [“Nobody writes recipes quite like the Smitten Kitchen!” said nobody, today at least.] Fill it with olive oil, lemon juice, crispy sea salt և red pepper flakes (I use These:) to taste և, if you’s, you have a small puddle of mayonnaise next to you to soak, but if you hate mayonnaise եք you’re going to tell me you’re doing it, you can use it either with lemon or garlic sour cream or yogurt sauce, or tahini sauce with lemon, or really any bandage that makes your asparagus sing. What I can not explain is why this is so inspiring. I often cook it եմ I leave it late in the afternoon, partly watching the preparation of dinner, partly so that any house can have something to graze, պարզապես it just disappears. Cold, boiled asparagus! Disappeared in 30 minutes. It’s either magical or just objectively good,: I would be good with anyone!
