Asparagus, when in season is one of my favourite vegetables and is extremely versatile. This light but satisfying omelette can be served hot or cold and is perfect cut into small pieces as a tapa or enjoyed in more generous servings for lunch.

Ingredients for Asparagus Omelette

1 bunch fresh green asparagus (roughly 250g)

How to make Asparagus Omelette

  • Wash and trim the asparagus and then cut into lengths of about 3cms. Cook in boiling salted water for about 3 minutes, then drain and set aside.
  • Peel and finely chop the onion and the garlic. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large shallow pan, add the garlic and onion and cook gently until the onion is soft and translucent.

  • Add the egg mixture to the pan with the onions and garlic and stir once. Then lower the heat right down and cook for about 15 - 20 minutes until the egg has set, finishing off under the grill if necessary.
