  • TotalN/A |
  • Serves6 Appetizers


    • 4 1/2 cups small asparagus spears
    • 3 tablespoons (100g) butter
    • 6 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
    • 1 cup marinated or fresh feta cheese
    • 5 tablespoon Elysian Isle Avocado Oil
    • salt


Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C on fan bake. Take time to remove carefully the tiny leaves from the stalk of the asparagus. Wash in cold water and dry.
Place asparagus in a large roasting dish with the butter and sprinkle with three good pinches of salt. Cook for 8-10 minutes stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon. Make sure they are well rolled in the butter.
When the bottom of the stalks begin to soften they are cooked. Using a fish slice to arrange into neat rows, divide the asparagus into 6. Place neatly onto 6 large hot flat plates.
Crumble feta over the stalks (not the tips) and drizzle the vinegar on top. Grind some black pepper on top.
Finally spoon the avocado oil over and around the asparagus. Eat immediately.
