Nutritional values

The asparagus-ham rolls are not only a hit in terms of protein - potassium is also found in abundance in the dish, namely in the asparagus. The mineral supports kidney activity and balances the body's fluid balance. The Parmesan also convinces with a load of bone-strengthening calcium.

Those who prefer to do without ham for the gratinated asparagus-ham-rolls can also wrap the gourmet vegetables in thin slices of courgette.

Preparation steps

1.

Peel asparagus and cut off woody ends. Cook in boiling salted water for about 8-10 minutes. Rinse and halve cherry tomatoes. Drain asparagus, rinse in cold water and pat dry with paper towels. 

2.

Grease shallow baking pan with oil. Wrap 3-4 asparagus spears with a slice of ham and arrange in the baking pan. Top with cherry tomatoes. Whisk cream cheese with egg, milk and 40 grams (approximately 1 1/2 ounce) of Parmesan and season with a little salt and pepper. Rinse chives, shake dry, cut into small rings and add about half of chives to cream mixture. 

3.

Spoon sauce over asparagus and sprinkle with remaining Parmesan. Bake in preheated oven at 200°C (gas mark 3-4, fan: 180°C) (approximately 400°F) for about 20-25 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining chives and serve.
