Ingredients

  • One bunch of asparagus (allow 5-6 large spears per person – more if spears are thin)
  • 2-3 handfuls of vegan parmesan (eg Violife Prosociano) OR vegan Greek-style cheese OR nutritional yeast flakes (Marigold Engevita brand, available from health food shops)
  • 1-2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and ground black pepper

Instructions

1. Cut away any hard parts from the bottom of asparagus spears.

2. Steam (preferably) or boil in water until cooked but still firm – about 7-10 mins.

3. Spread tinfoil over the bottom of a grill pan and place spears on it, side by side.

4. Sprinkle 2-3 handfuls of vegan cheese or nutritional yeast flakes over top plus a little olive oil.

5. Grill on full until gratinee is golden – about 2-3 minutes.

6. Transfer to individual serving plates, scraping any residue from the tinfoil.

7. Serve with nice bread as a first course or with new potatoes and salad.

Did you know that Vegan Recipe Club is run by a charity?

We create vital resources to help educate everyone – vegan veterans, novices and the v-curious alike – about vegan food, health and nutrition; as well as the plight of farmed animals and the devastating environmental impact of farming.

Through this work we have helped thousands of people discover veganism; but we want to reach millions more! We rely entirely on donations as we don’t get any government funding. If you already support us, thank you from the bottom of our hearts, you are really making a difference! Please share our details with your friends and loved ones too, as every donation enables us to keep fighting for change.
