One of my favourite vegetables are asparagus. I just love the earthy deep flavour that an asparagus gives when you eat it. Pairing this vegetable along side cherry tomatoes adds a nice slight sweet taste, that help make this a perfect quick vegetable side dish.

Serves 2 generously


  • 2 tbsp good quality extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 large cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 bundle of asparagus, washed and trimmed
  • 2 tbsp water or stock
  • 1 pint of cherry tomatoes
  • coarse salt and freshly cracked black pepper
  • 3 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • Freshly shaved Parmesan cheese (optional)

Heat a large skillet on medium high and drizzle in 2 tbsp of olive oil. Saute the garlic and asparagus for about 2 minutes, then add in the water or stock to help steam the asparagus. Once the water has almost cooked out, add in the cherry tomatoes. Season with a couple good pinches of salt and little freshly cracked pepper. Drizzle in 3 tbsp of white wine vinegar and gently mix altogether. Once the vinegar has cooked out turn the heat off and serve immediately. Serve with freshly shaved Parm if you wish.
