This evening, I made this tasty & fabulous Vegan & Gluten-Free green asparagus silken tofu sauce & served it with remaining smaller cooked, cooled off & fried green asparagus. It is a divine pasta dinner. I use 100% whole buckwheat pasta tubes, to make the dinner Gluten-Free as well. Just look at that glorious appetizing sauce!!!!

Recipe: For 3 persons, with a lot of hunger

Ingredients:

* For the green asparagus silken tofu sauce:

2 big fat spring onions, washed, cleaned, pad dry on kitchen paper, cut into smaller rings

black pepper

Maldon sea salt

190 gr of silken tofu, excess water drained off

200 gr of smaller thinner green asparagus spears, rough 1 cm cut off & I didn’t peel them because their skin was fresh & not tough/ 15 spears kept apart

1 bunch thick green asparagus, ( about 15 ), rough end: 2 to 3 cm cut off & peeled for 3/4 with a vegetable peeler, like this:

* For the GF pasta:

350 gr 100% GF buckwheat pasta tubes / I used Castagno bio

a fruity extra virgin olive oil

sea salt

* For the 15 fried green asparagus( to top your pasta )

15 reserved, kept apart, thin green asparagus ( cooked with the rest )

sunflower oil

black pepper

Maldon sea salt

Method:

1. Cook your asparagus in 2 different & fitting cooking pots in some salted water until al dente. I cooked all of my thin asparagus for 3 to 5 minutes & drained them well.Keep warm. The bigger asparagus took me 6 to 8 minutes. Drain well too.

2. Cook your pasta according to your packet instructions in a lot of hot salted water. I also added 2 drizzles of a fruity evoo. Drain well & keep warm. In the meantime, fry spring onion rings in some sunflower oil & season with black pepper & Maldon sea salt. Set aside.

3. Make your green asparagus silken tofu sauce. Take a food processor & add cooked thicker green asparagus, rest of the cooked thinner green asparagus, but keep 15 of them apart to fry in a few minutes. Add silken tofu, fried spring onion pieces, 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt & 15 grins of black pepper. Mix or blitz until the sauce is white with dots of green in them. I like my sauce, a bit thinner but not too thin. See picture above & below.You don’t want large chunks in your sauce but still, something like this:

Taste your sauce. We are not going to heat up your silken tofu in this sauce but your sauce will be warmish because of the just cooked asparagus & the fried spring onions. Taste again. Add some seasoning if you need to. You still must taste a soft creamy sauce & then, at the back of your mouth, the lovely aromas of the green asparagus & then a kick of the black pepper & some sea salt too, but not too much! Add it & pulse again. Pour the sauce into a lovely saucer, like above & just before serving, mix well with a spoon, for a nice sauce consistency! 🙂 Just before serving, heat up 3 pasta plates.

4. End, with frying your reserved 15 thin asparagus in some hot sunflower oil, season with black pepper & sea salt. Fry until crisp  & bit browned on both sides. Now, plate up instantly! Take your pasta bowl & ad cooked GF pasta.Top with 2 to 3 big spoonfuls of that lovely creamy asparagus silken tofu sauce & place 5 crisp green asparagus on top, onto each plate. Do the same with the 2 other plates.

You must mingle the sauce into the hot pasta tubes, for extra yummyness!!! Happy eating! 🙂 MMM,…I assure you this will be a huge hit! 😉

  1. Hi Sophie,
    You just keep on producing great dishes. 🙂
    Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  2. This looks delicious Sophie. Asparagus is at it’s best here in England right now, what a great way to use it!

  3. I wish it was asparagus season here! Unfortunately asparagus is too expensive at the moment to cook with. I love the look of the sauce and it’s such a pretty colour xx

  4. what a brilliant preparation for the sauce. I love pureeing silken tofu into smoothies, sauces, puddings, etc and it’s fun to see what you’ve done with it. Nice!

    1. I never used it like this before & I am impressed. It is superb! You can also use this sauce on top of jacket potatoes, on top of a mixed salad instead of mayonaise & on everything really!!

  5. You have just reminded me that we actually have presummer and aspargustime, Sophie.. It feels like latwinter though….Bonn; rainy, grey, 7°. Just outside Bonn, in Bornheim, we have some of the best aspargusfields in the whole of Germany. I’ll go and get some today, you rwonderful recipes inspired me! :-). Have a lovely Sunday
    Greetings from the Rhine Valley.

  6. Yum, this looks delicious!
    I adore asparagus. I will definitely be trying this recipe.
    Oh it is cold at your place! We are nearly in Winter but it is not as cold here. Stay warm!

  7. Hello Sophie,
    Again a great dish. I’d like to try it right now. Well done!

  8. On my list of things to make! Asparagus is one of my favourite veggies, so I know that this will be a winner!

  9. I am an asparagus freak, Sophie, breakfast, lunch and dinner. Love em in my eggs. Have a bed in my garden.

  10. Great idea. Love the idea of the sauce and also you have green asparagus !!! So did it taste good ??? 🙂

  11. This looks so lovely! It’s the best thing ever when you can pack green veggies into a healthy sauce. So divine!!
