Salad – slice the asparagus on the diagonal, and boil for 3 minutes, leave to cool. In a bowl combine asparagus, with cold (maybe leftover) roasted new potatoes, peas, sliced radishes and cucumber, spring onions and a sprinkling of grated parmesan.

Pesto – trim and boil the asparagus for up to 10 minutes, but don’t let it become too mushy, drain the water and leave to cool. In a food processor combine the asparagus with garlic, pine nuts, oil, parmesan, salt and a little water. Pulse until you get the consistency you want and then add lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste.

      Hi Pascale,

      Unfortunately we are unable to translate all the recipes into different languages at the moment. You can use Google Translate to translate them yourself if you need to. The translation won’t be perfect, but it should give you a good idea of what you’ll need to do.

      We hope this helps and apologise for the inconvenience,

      Best,

      Lifesum
