Waggle Charred Asparagus

 

Try this quick and simple, sweet and savoury, vegetarian dish... delicious and healthy, and full of umami goodness! You will need:

  • Fresh asparagus*
  • Ricotta cheese (read to the end for an easy homemade recipe!)
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Waggle Chilli or Salted Honey
  • Any seeds & nuts (pecans and pine nuts work well)
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Olive oil (optional)
*Not a fan of asparagus? Substitute with broccoli or green beans instead!

Instructions:
  • Get a nice char on the veggies using high heat. Either in the oven using the grill, in a very hot pan on the stove, or over some hot coals. Separately, toast your seeds and nuts for a nice smokey flavour.
  • Lay the charred veggies on a plate, drizzle with your Waggle Craft Honey, and add some finely grated parmesan. Lastly, crumble over the ricotta and finish it off with your toasted seeds and nuts.
Want to make your own homemade ricotta? You will need:
  • 1 litre of goat's milk
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
Method:
  • Bring the milk to a boil in a large pot on the stove. Add lemon juice and salt and give it a quick 2 second stir.
  • Remove the pot from the heat and let it sit for 5 minutes. Don't stir!
  • Strain the pot's contents through a tea towel, and voila!
After cooling down, your ricotta will last 4 to 5 days in a sealed container in the fridge... but with a recipe this good, you might not have any leftovers!
