The start of the asparagus season is such a lovely happening every year I find. It's very exciting starting to see asparagus from England and then your own county. I started liking asparagus back in the day in Germany, but then only the white asparagus was ever served. I really love German style white asparagus soup or just the chunky asparagus spears served with sauce Hollandaise and potatoes.
These days I make quite a few green asparagus dishes in the spring and summer and this time I decided to incorporate steamed asparagus into a vegan roast dinner. It became a colourful and uplifting looking dish, just like spring should be.
For this roast dinner I cooked steamed asparagus, a vegan Schnitzel, roasted carrots, roasted potatoes, fried onions, and served fresh lamb's lettuce and tomatoes on the side.
And why not serve the dinner with this green Sign of Spring beer by Stonehenge Ales. It tastes exactly like a regular tasty ale, but has been coloured green with food colouring.
Enjoy your spring meals!
