I just can’t get enough of asparagus at the moment.  One of the great things about this vegetable is that it takes minutes to prepare and minutes to cook. 

Asparagus loves a little butter and the notes of miso add another level of deliciousness.

Quick asparagus with miso butter

Serves 4

16 spears asparagus
50g butter
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 tsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp miso paste
1 Tbsp rice wine vinegar
cracked black pepper

Prepare the asparagus by snapping off the tough end of the stalks.

In a large frypan, melt the butter, add garlic, soy and miso. Gently fry all the ingredients together over a medium heat.

Add the asparagus and cook in the miso flavoured butter for 4-5 minutes or until the asparagus is just tender.

Add the vinegar to the pan and toss the asparagus in the delicious butter.

Serve immediately.
