Kitchen utensils

1 Small pot, 2 large Pots, 1 Pot (or vessel to decant), 1 Peeler, 1 Small knife, 1 Teaspoon, 1 Kitchen shears, 1 Sieve, 1 Tablespoon, 2 Bowls, 1 Whisk, 1 Slotted spoon, 1 Measuring cups

Preparation steps

Green and White Asparagus preparation step 1

Gently lower the eggs into a pot of boiling water and hard cook for 8-10 minutes. Remove from pan, rinse under cold water and allow to cool. 

Green and White Asparagus preparation step 2

While the eggs cook, rinse the asparagus. Thoroughly peel the stalks of white asparagus with a vegetable peeler, then peel just the lower third of green asparagus, reserving the trimmings. Cut off rough ends. 

Green and White Asparagus preparation step 3

Combine the asparagus trimmings in a large pot, cover well with water and add ½ teaspoon salt and a pinch of sugar. Bring to a boil, cover and cook over low heat for 20 minutes.

Green and White Asparagus preparation step 4

Meanwhile, peel the potatoes, cover with water in a pot, cover and cook until knife-tender, 25-30 minutes.

Green and White Asparagus preparation step 5

Rinse radishes, wipe dry and cut into thin sticks. Rinse chives, shake dry and cut into small rings. Cut the cress from the roots.

Green and White Asparagus preparation step 6

Pour asparagus-trimmings water through a sieve, return it to the pot and return to a boil. Cook the white asparagus for 7 minutes, then add green asparagus and continue cooking until both are crisp-tender, 4-5 minutes more. The spears should be tender but still firm to the bite.

Green and White Asparagus preparation step 7

For the vinaigrette, whisk together the vinegar with salt and pepper to taste, mustard, and approximately 1/3 cup of the asparagus water. Gradually whisk in the oil. 

Green and White Asparagus preparation step 8

Peel eggs and chop coarsely. Combine eggs, radishes, chives and cress in a bowl. Fold in the vinaigrette and season with salt and pepper.

Green and White Asparagus preparation step 9

Drain potatoes. Remove asparagus from the pot with a skimmer, drain briefly and divide among plates. Sprinkle with the vinaigrette and serve with the potatoes.
