Is asparagus time…there are so many recipes with this vegetable rich of fibres, vitamins and mineral salts! But how to use them without waste?

Welcome spring! How wonderful is the first blooming trees with the awakening nature; how exciting is find the first vegetables of the new season at the market. Let’s start, for example, to celebrate the arrival of asparagus: they have excellent purifying properties and a high content of calcium, phosphorus, magnesium and potassium. In addition they are simple and quick to cook and they can be prepared in different ways: in a risotto, on a quiche, for a cream or omelettes …. Today a quick recipe for an asparagus cream with lemon and mint flavor. Enjoy your meal 😉
Avocado is a great fruit: I use it for sweet mousse and to prepare salads or sauces. I live in Italy so I’ve tried those imported from other countries, but some years ago, I’ve discovered that there are many avocado plantations in Sicily. I’ve tried them and they are great. Now, I prefer to wait for their natural ripening and harvest instead of buying them in a supermarket in every moment of the year. Today I share with you this nice recipe: a revisited gazpacho with avocado and beetroot; I hope you like it 😉

When I meet these wonderful red bunches of cherry tomatoes on the market benches, I just can’t keep of buying them. There are many ways to use during the summer time, when they are at their maximum beauty. This recipe I’m going to share, is always a great success! It’s perfect to serve for a cocktail or as a starter before a lunch with friends. You can prepare the ingredients a few hours before and then, at the last moment, create a really inviting dish!
Millet…someone think it’s animal feed 🙂 and when I say that I cook it, sometimes people get very surprised. In my son’s school, the wonderful cook prepare it in a very tasty way: children call it “Exqueezy” (a funny way to say exquisite). With this recipe I mix it together with other ingredients to prepare vegetarian croquettes. With a fresh summer salad becomes a really special dish to serve.
