Ingredients

  • 10 thick fresh white asparagus
  • 3 large hard-boiled eggs
  • a handful fresh parsley
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter melted
  • pepper
  • salt

Instructions

  1. First peel the asparagus. Place them horizontally on a clean chopping board and hold them with one hand by their heads. Then with your free hand carefully run a vegetable peeler from the heads towards the bottom part. Turn the asparagus as you go until you have removed every inch of the tough skin.

  3. Once you have peeled all the asparagus, heck the bottom parts and chop them off if they are dried out. Fill a wide pan with water and bring it to a gentle boil. Then add the asparagus to it and cook them for 7 to 10 minutes (depends how thick they are) until tender. Keep an eye on them!
