Asparagus Foam

Recommended Posts

I made one once by cooking the trimmings from asparagus for about 20 minutes in some stock, strained the stock, added a little Lecithin and then mixed with a bamix. If I remember correctly I added a few spinach leaves to help make it green in colour.

Pretty! I made some last night -- par boiled the asparagus (not the tips), pureed with a little heavy cream, salt and pepper. I thinned it with milk and frothed with a hand blender. It was nice but I think it needed the Lecithin (which I just ordered) to hold the foam a bit better. Thanks for all the input.

PS - if you add a little sugar or honey to your ice bath when you shock your green vegetables they will hold their green color better

Sorry for the misplaced implication! Yours are stunning (It was just a random thought I had when I saw your reference to adding spinach leaves to the foam).

Ah! I thought you may have been colour blind or working on a black and white monitor :laugh:
