  • wok or stir fry pan
  • little pan


  • 1 kg white asparagus
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tbl spoon olive oil
  • 2 tbl spoon raw almonds raw, peeled
  • 1 tbl spoon pine nuts
  • 2 tbl spoon honey liquid
  • 10 gr parsley fresh leave parsley
  • peper en zout


  • Roast the almonds in a small pan and then the pine nuts. Set aside. Note: I do not add oil to the pan when roasting nuts. Nuts naturally contain oil, which is released when heated.
  • Peel the asparagus with a vegetable peeler. You do this by holding the asparagus by the top and then peeling it from top to bottom. Turn the asparagus around. I peel twice, so I turn the asparagus twice when peeling. You will then notice that the asparagus becomes more glassy and releases moisture. If you hold a peeled asparagus towards the light, you will also see a dark part at the bottom. This is the woody piece you need to cut off. Usually this is about 3-4 cm.
  • Cut the garlic into fine slices, add 1 tablespoon of oil to the wok and fry the garlic until it starts to color slightly. Remove the garlic from the oil and set aside.
    Chop the fresh parsley.
  • Cut the peeled asparagus into pieces of 3-4 cm. Add the rest of the oil to the wok and fry the asparagus. I stir fry them for about 5 minutes.
  • Then add the nuts, garlic and parsley. In the meantime, continue to stir fry. Season with salt and pepper. Finally, add the liquid honey. Stir well. For me, the asparagus is done after 8 minutes of stir-frying. Cooking time is different for everyone. So tasting is the message….
  • NOTE: Since I live in Spain, I hardly cook vegetables anymore. Asparagus, like mushrooms, has a lot of water and I think a lot of flavor is lost when cooking. For example, I will stir-fry asparagus, cook it in papillote, bake it or grill it. I like them crispy and cut them into 3-4 cm pieces. This way you don't have to worry about long, stringy asparagus that has been overcooked …

This recipe for stir-fried white asparagus combines the subtle flavor of fresh white asparagus with the accents of roasted nuts and the sweetness of honey. The dish is prepared in a wok, which gives the asparagus a slightly caramelized exterior while keeping them wonderfully crispy. The addition of finely chopped garlic brings an aromatic depth that perfectly balances the sweetness of the honey.
Asparagus is rich in fiber, vitamins A, C, E, and K, and folic acid, while nuts provide healthy fats and protein. Serve this versatile side dish alongside a meat or fish main course, or enjoy it as a standalone vegetarian main course.
We ate this dish together with skin-fried gilthead bream. I hope it tastes well
