This is a great side recipe in case you’re bored with sweet potato mash or cauliflower mash and want something a bit lighter and more refreshing.
It’s really easy to make, but you should blanch your asparagus shoots before pureeing it and saute the onions for a sweeter flavor. Blanching the asparagus and adding in the lemon juice will also give you a bright green color and a fresher taste.
This recipe is Paleo as well as low carb/keto-friendly, and AIP (autoimmune-friendly). So it’s great to serve as a side dish when you have family or friends with different diets.
