Asparagus is an important source of vitamins and vegetable oil for our body and it must be included in a balanced diet.
We share with you our recipe to prepare a delicious asparagus cream.
• 1 kilo of fresh asparagus (without the fibrous end)
• 1 pore (chopped white part).
• 1 large onion (chopped).
• Drops of lemon juice to taste.
• ½ tablespoon of vegetable oil.
• 2 butter spoons.
• 4 cups of chicken broth.
• ¾ cups of evaporated milk.
First, we cut the asparagus into small pieces.
In a pot, over low heat, add the vegetable oil and add the butter so that it melts.
Add the chopped onion and leek, cook until tender. Then, we add the asparagus and let it cook for five minutes.
Add the chicken broth and wait 20 minutes until the asparagus are well seasoned to taste with salt, pepper and / or cumin.
Next, we remove the pot from the heat and let it cool for about 10 minutes.
We liquefy the contents of the pot so that a cream is obtained and we return it to the container. We proceed adding the evaporated milk.
If we want a less thick cream, add more chicken broth, along with an additional tablespoon of butter and lemon drops, and then boil for a few minutes.
Finally, if we want to decorate the dish, we can cook the tips of the asparagus in salted water for 5 minutes, then serve and add them.
