Creamed Asparagus
Recipe Ingredients:
  • 8-10 asparagus spears
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground white peppercorns
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup shredded fontina or peasant gouda, if desired

Wash and snap the asparagus spears off at the root end. Cut the asparagus into bite sized pieces. Place in covered batter bowl or "ugly pot". Microwave on high 3 minutes.

Set aside. In batter bowl combine flour, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Microwave on high 30 seconds. Whisk in milk and microwave on high 2 minutes.

Whisk well, adding another 1-2 minutes as needed to thicken. Whisk in cheese to melt.

Add asparagus and juices. Use as is for a great vegetable dish or use as a sauce or topping.

Vegetable Dishes

Cooking Tips:   Fontina: A ripened cheese of variable texture and flavor, originally produced in Italy
Gouda: A mild, close-textured, pale yellow cheese made from whole or partially skimmed milk.
Gouda is a yellowish Dutch cheese named after the city of Gouda. The cheese is made from cow's milk that is cultured and heated until the curds separate from the whey. About ten percent of the mixture is curds which are pressed into circular moulds for a couple of hours. The moulds give the cheese its traditional shape. Next, the cheese is soaked in a brine solution which gives the cheese its rind and improves the taste. After the salt soaks in, the cheese is then dried for a couple of days before being coated to prevent it from drying out. It is aged for a number of weeks before it is ready to be eaten. The term "Gouda" is now a generic name, and not restricted to cheese of Dutch origin. The term "Noord-Hollandse Gouda" is registered in the EU as a Protected Designation of Origin. The peculiar thing about this is that the city Gouda is located in the Dutch province Zuid-Holland. However, Gouda-type cheeses from Noord-Holland have a better reputation for their quality.
