|Difficulty level||Preparation time||Rations|
|Very easy||1 h.||For 3 people|
- 250 gr. asparagus
- 90 gr. cashew parmesan
- 90 gr. breadcrumbs
- zest of 1 lemon
- 80 gr. Yolanda flour
- 120 ml. soy milk
- 1 pinch of pepper
- 1 pinch of salt
- Wash the asparagus, cut away the hard part (the lower end) and set aside.
- Put to heat water with salt in a large pot and, when it starts to boil, add the asparagus and cook for 3 minutes. After this time, take them out of the water and drain them, rinse them under running cold water in the strainer to keep the color bright and let them drain again. Set aside.
- In a bowl, put the Yolanda flour, soy milk, salt and pepper and stir with a whisk so that no lumps remain. Set aside.
- In a large bowl or dish, put the breadcrumbs, cashew parmesan and lemon zest and stir well to obtain a uniform mixture.
- Preheat the oven to 200º and, meanwhile, prepare the asparagus. First, dip the asparagus one by one into the flour, soy milk, salt and pepper mixture and, then, dip them into the breadcrumbs, cashew parmesan and lemon zest mixture. As asparagus are coated, place them side by side in a baking dish, making sure they are not caked.
- Introduce the baking dish in the oven and bake for 15 minutes, making sure the asparagus do not burn. After this time, when they are brown, take the asparagus out of the oven and serve freshly baked.
- When it comes to grating the lemon peel, it is important that it be clean and, if possible, that it be organic.
- So that the flavor is not altered, we recommend that soy milk be without added sugars.
- It is important that the dish or bowl where we make the mixture of bread crumbs, cashew parmesan and lemon zest is wide enough so that the asparagus will fit well when batting.
- If you want a thicker coating of batter, you can again pass the asparagus, once battered, by the mixture of Yolanda flour and soy milk and by the mixture of bread crumbs, cashew parmesan and lemon zest.
- If you want an even crunchier consistency, you can bake the asparagus with the air from the oven placed during the last minutes to dry them.
- We recommend that, once baked, you consume the asparagus freshly removed from the oven, as they soften quickly.
