Perfect weekend food!😍 When it's April and asparagus season is about to start, I love to make this simple meal that really let's the asparagus shine. Because sometimes simplicity is key.  Pair it with a nice glass of fresh German riesling or Italian pinot blanc, with has a little bit of sweetness to it.

Tip: don't ever throw away the peels because they taste amazing in a vegetable broth! 

RECIPE (4 persons)


  • 1,5-2kg asparagus, peeled
  • 100gr unsalted butter
  • 1 lemon
  • 700gr ham
  • Thyme (fresh/dried)
  • Parsley (fresh), chopped



  1. Rub the ham with olive oil, thyme, peper and salt. Roast in a preheated oven at 180°C for 45 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile boil the asparagus for 8 min. Turn off the heat and leave them for 10 min in their cooking fluid.
  3. Melt the butter in a saucepan, add the lemon juice of 1 lemon and stir.
  4. Slice the ham and put them on a plate. Add the asparagus. Mix the parsley into the butter sauce and pour over the asparagus. Top with some grated lemon zest, pepper and salt. Enjoy!
