This is the first asparagus we've had this year. Little has decided he doesn't like asparagus anymore. All the more for the rest of us, as we love them, including Small. Little also decided that he doesn't like the dip. Obviously in the mood for not liking stuff today. Little Foodies eh?
In a mini blender add 1 bunch of chopped spring onions (salad onions, scallions) keep a few pieces for garnishing, 3 tablespoons of mayonnaise and 3 tablespoons of plain greek yogurt, Squeeze juice of half a lemon and blitz until spring onion is very finely chopped. Add a little freshly ground black pepper. Transfer to a little bowl and garnish with a few pieces of chopped spring onion.
Just tried another version by frying the spring onions in a little olive oil first and that was loved by both boys. I thought it was delicious too, not as strong as with the uncooked spring onions.
Cook the asparagus in a little boiling water for 5 minutes. Serve with the spring onion dip.
