A nice way to serve up grilled meat or fish is with a nice sauce like this asparagus leek sauce. It is healthy and also different and low cost so perfect for my low cost xmas campaign. The sauce can be made up in advance and the chicken/fish/meat can be grilled and then the sauce heated and poured ontop. It is best served with either garlic bread or tossed pasta in butter.
INGREDIENTS FOR THE SAUCE:
1 cup of green asparagus , chopped …you can either use fresh or frozen
1/4 cup of leeks, use the green part for a better color
cream as needed or milk…i used semi skimmed milk
salt and pepper to taste
boil the asparagus and leeks in enough milk to just cover it till soft. If using cream boil it in water and then add the cream later while blending it. When the asparagus and leeks have softened let it cool and blend it in the blender till smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Heat when needed and pour over grilled fish, meat or chicken, Serve with flaked almonds and dots of tabasco sauce.
FOR THE VEGETARIAN VERSI0N
you can use this sauce to pour over grilled tofu/paneer steaks or even over pasta.
Let us all enjoy the festive season alike!!
NITU DIDI TIP: To make it richer you can add a dollop of butter when heating the sauce
