The tip you need to know so you don’t miss cooking asparagus again

Spring marks the return of seasonal fruits and vegetables to our plates. We will mention strawberries, rhubarb, radishes, but also asparagus. The latter can be cooked in different ways: Flemish style, to be integrated into a velouté or a risotto, or even grilled on the barbecue. However, cooking asparagus is not always an easy task. A famous chef gives us his valuable advice for successful cooking.

Very special cooking

Simone Zanoni is the Italian chef behind the stove at George, the Mediterranean restaurant at the Four Seasons George V which has been awarded one star in the Michelin Guide. To cook our asparagus without fuss, Simone Zanoni recommends sous vide cooking as he details in one of his TikTok videos. You will have understood, you will need to have a device in your cupboards allowing you to package your food. In addition to the asparagus, the chef slips salt and oil into his vacuum bag.

In practice, how does it work? Simone Zanone suggests bringing together “two kilos of large green asparagus. I put them in my empty pocket with 120g of olive oil and 20g of salt. I steamed them for 4 minutes at 85 degrees. For what ? This way I will retain all the juice inside. The asparagus will remain crunchy“. Simone Zazoni finishes preparing her asparagus by lightly grilling it on the barbecue. The key? “An exceptional taste. And what’s more, you will keep all the taste, fragrance, aromas and crunchiness of asparagus.“.

The benefits of asparagus

Asparagus has many benefits for our health whether it is white, green or purple. Made up of more than 90% water, it is rich in potassium and contains antioxidants which help prevent the onset of certain diseases. In the columns of Santé Magazine, Véronique Liégeois, dietician-nutritionist and author of books on food and health, indicates that asparagus helps “its various substances stimulate renal elimination, which also limits the risk of water retention, particularly in the lower limbs“.

Asparagus also contains fiber, thus helping to take care of intestinal transit. Rich in vitamins C and E, it constitutes an interesting anti-aging ally to prevent the signs of aging.
