This is an ideal dish to take to a picnic, as it is good cold, or it can be served as a starter. Obviously, it could also be served as a main course, but for fewer people.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 bunch green asparagus, each spear peeled, trimmed and cut into 3 pieces
6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
400g white onions, peeled and finely sliced
10 medium eggs
50g parmesan, freshly grated
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
salt
freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. Cook the asparagus chunks in a little boiling salted water for 10–12 minutes. Drain well.
  2. Heat half the olive oil in a 25cm frying pan and fry the onions until soft but not brown, about 10 minutes. Add the cooked and drained asparagus.
  3. Beat the eggs in a bowl and mix with the cheese, parsley and salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Heat the onion and asparagus pan up well, adding a little more of the remaining oil, then add the egg mixture. Cook gently, to let it solidify on one side, about 10 minutes. Every now and again use a spatula to gently loosen the base of the omelette from the sides, which allows some of the liquid mixture to hit the base of the pan and set. When there is no more liquid left, put a plate over the top of the pan and invert the omelette on to the plate, then slide it back into the pan, uncooked side down. Add the remaining oil, and brown the other side, about 5–6 minutes.
  5. Serve hot or cold.
