  • 1 bunch white asparagus
  • 1 small bunch wild garlic
  • 1 knob butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • water


  • Start by peeling asparagus (see tips in the article) and rinse wild garlic.
  • Heat butter and oil in a large pan (large enough to lay whole asparagus inside).
  • When fat is hot, place asparagus in the pan, roast for about 3 minutes on one side over medium heat, then flip asparagus and add the wild garlic leaves.
  • Roast for a few more minutes, add ¼ to ½ glass of water and cover. Asparagus will continue to gently cook, flavors of wild garlic will develop.
  • Cook for a few more minutes until asparagus become tender. The cooking time depends on thickness of asparagus.
