The baked white asparagus they provide us with a lot of fiber, in addition to vitamins and minerals, also adding very few calories to our body. But eating the battered asparagus is always synonymous with adding more calories, but I assure you that this is not always the case.
In fact, in RecetasGratis, we propose two different ways to make this same recipe, in a classic way, fried in olive oil, or cutting calories, cooking the Asparagus Baked. The two forms are equally simple and the result in flavor is very similar, now you have the final choice for its preparation.
In this case, I have prepared the baked asparagus with ham but you also have the option to roll them with some slice of the cheese that you like and coat them and gratin them just like in this recipe for baked green asparagus with ham and cheese.
4 diners 30m Starter Low difficulty Additional features: Cheap cost, Recommended to lose weight, Baked recipes Ingredients:
- 12 thick white canned asparagus
- 12 thin square York ham slices
- 50 grams of flour
- 2 eggs
- 100 grams of breadcrumbs
- 1 pinch of freshly ground black pepper
Steps to follow to make this recipe: 1
First, we will carefully drain and dry the asparagus and we roll each one in a thin slice of ham York (if you want, you can previously put a square slice of cheese between the asparagus and the ham).
Trick: This time I did not put cheese to make a lighter dish, but do not hesitate to put it too.
We flour carefully asparagus.
Trick: If you are celiac, use cornstarch or chickpea flour or rice to flour the white asparagus.
We pass the asparagus coated in the I beaten egg.
And finally, the we batter for breadcrumbs to which previously we will have put a little freshly grated pepper.
Personally I do not like the bread that they sell grated to prepare the baked white asparagus, I like grater it at home, and for this I put the cut pieces of bread (with crust and crumb) in the glass mixer and the trituro. I like the texture that remains, as it is more similar to panko.
Trick: You can coat the asparagus with toasted corn (kikos) or crushed almonds so that they are gluten-free.
And now, we have two options: either bake the asparagus or fry them. To make them fried we will put in a wide frying pan a good jet of olive oil and when it is very hot we fry them on both sides until they are golden brown and let them drain on absorbent kitchen paper.
But, this time I have decided to subtract calories and I have made the baked asparagus with ham, and for this, we line a tray with vegetable paper and put the battered asparagus in it. The Bake at 200 ºC with heat up and down for 15 minutes or until golden.
Trick: The cooking time of the asparagus in the oven may vary depending on your appliance but more than 15 minutes does not usually take long.
We serve immediately the Asparagus Baked with light mayonnaise sauce, a yogurt sauce or the sauce you want for example.
