This Asparagus, Mushroom and Bacon Slice is my 'go to' recipe when I need a quick savoury slice for an easy dinner. It has a great combination of flavours, it is gluten free and it goes perfectly topped with a good quality tomato sauce including this homemade tomato relish!
We really love Asparagus and eat it in lots of different ways including on the BBQ, drizzled with olive oil and salt, we pop them into salads and even roast them in small bundles.
This is a versatile recipe and you can change up the flavour by adding different types of cheeses. Sometimes I use a tasty grated cheese, other times, parmesan cheese, or I even add in chucks of fetta cheese or a full- flavoured onion flavoured cheese.
Tips to cooking with Asparagus
Asparagus is a spring vegetable although you can find them in stores all year round. They are a nutrient-rich vegetable high in vitamin K, folate and a wide a variety of antioxidant nutrients such as vitamin C. Asparagus is a member of the lily family, which includes onions, leeks and garlic.
The tip to this recipe is to store your Asparagus in a large glass jar. This way it will keep your asparagus fresh and stop them from becoming floppy.
Also, make sure you snip off the woody ends of the asparagus with kitchen scissors or a knife, to make sure your asparagus is soft and delicious.
