IMG_1996It is called as one of the nature’s most perfect food . Any guesses? yep Asparagus. I heard it is one of the best anti-oxidant and it also has low-calories. Based on the facts I wanted to try a baking recipe as I am not really interested to make a curry out of it. So I thought of trying asparagus Onion casserole. When buying asparagus, choose firm, bright-green spears with tight tips. If asparagus stems are tough, use a vegetable peeler to remove the outer layer. Cook the asparagus within 3 to 4 days of purchase.

  • 1 pound fresh asparagus, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 medium onions, sliced
  • 5 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 package cream cheese ( substituted with non-fat yogurt)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup soft bread crumbs

In a skillet, saute the asparagus and onions in 1 tablespoon of butter until crisp-tender, about 8 minutes.
Transfer to an ungreased 1-1/2-qt. baking dish. In a saucepan, melt 2 tablespoons butter.
Stir in flour until smooth; gradually add milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.
Reduce heat. Add cream cheese, salt and pepper; stir until cheese is melted.
Pour over the vegetables. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese. Melt remaining butter; toss with bread crumbs. 
Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until heated through.

    I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your site. It’s
    a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here and visit
    more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme?

    Excellent work!

      Late reply, but wanted to let you know there is no magic. Just using the layout as it is with my design. And thinking of updating now frequently, which I stopped looking for.
