How to cook asparagus sous vide

Cooking asparagus sous vide locks in flavour that would normally be lost when boiling in water. It also allows for precise cooking and the slightly lower temperature prevents the cells of the vegetables from breaking down too much, keeping the asparagus crisp.

1
Preheat the water bath to 75°C
2
Peel the asparagus and trim off the woody ends
3
Transfer to a vacuum bag with a pinch of salt and a dash of olive oil and seal
4
Cook for 10–15 minutes depending on the thickness of the spears. You can test if the asparagus is done by gently squeezing the base of a spear – it should give a little but still be firm
5
If not serving immediately, put the bag into a bowl of iced water for 2–3 minutes to stop the cooking

Variations

Try using other fats in the bag such as butter, rapeseed oil or hazelnut oil for extra flavour.

Serving Suggestions

Use this cooking method in Josh Eggleton’s Fried duck egg with asparagus and truffle recipe or Colin McGurran’s Chicken with wild garlic and asparagus. Agnar Sverrisson’s Asparagus with parmesan snow, olive oil biscuit and hazelnuts is a little more challenging but utterly delicious.
