Ingredients

For the gazpacho

  • 1 Liliup melon
  • 85 g green pepper
  • 135 g cucumber
  • 30 g of EVOO
  • 55 g onion
  • Salt

For the asparagus

  • 4 fresh white asparagus
  • Salt and sugar water (5g of each per liter of water)

For the vinaigrette

  • 50 g green pepper
  • 30 g red pepper
  • 40 g onion
  • Fresh coriander
  • 25 g of EVOO
  • 20 g of sherry vinegar
  • Salt

Instructions

  • The first thing we will do is cook the white asparagus. For this we put them vertical in a pot with salt water and sugar tied with a rubber avoiding the yolks to cook. In this position we will cook them for 20-25 minutes depending on the thickness. When we can go through the stem easily with a knife, we knock down the asparagus, release the rubber and cook the entire asparagus for 5 minutes. We turn off the heat and leave the asparagus in the hot water for 5 more minutes. It is important to cook the asparagus with a little sugar to avoid bitterness.
  • While the asparagus cooks we prepare the green gazpacho. We introduce all the ingredients in a whisk glass and beat until there is a fine mixture without lumps. We tested and corrected the salt point. We reserve in a refrigerator to serve cold.
  • We prepare the vinaigrette for the asparagus by chopping all the vegetables in brunoise, that is, in very small squares. We incorporate them in a pot, season with salt, EVOO and vinegar, mix well and add chopped coriander to taste.
  • We cut the asparagus into bite-size portions, serve the green gazpacho in a bowl, decorate with the asparagus, a few tablespoons of vinaigrette and enjoy!
