Asparagus 'Fries'


I love these substitutes for French fries. Kids will eat them if allowed to pick them up. In my opinion, they are best if made with the thin sort of asparagus. They are neutral for all, and can go from casual meal to dinner party menu.

  • Asparagus, however much you like
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil per pound of asparagus
  • sea salt, to taste.
How to make it:
  1. Cut off woody end of asparagus (hold below blossom and end of stalk and bend the stalk gently as if folding, discard the cut end).
  2. Line a pan with foil and pre-heat broiler.
  3. Lay out the asparagus in a line on the lined pan and sprinkle with olive oil first then flake sea salt.
  4. Broil for 7-9 minutes, very close to the broiler coil then turn the asparagus over and broil for another 3-5 minutes (time depends on thickness of the stalk).
  5. Eat with fingers.
