For the strawberry vinaigrette
4 medium strawberries

Start with the vinaigrette. Remove the stem from the strawberries and wash. Put all the ingredients except the salt and pepper in a tall blender glass. Beat with the blender for a few seconds until a homogeneous sauce is obtained. Salt and pepper, stir and reserve.
Wash the asparagus. Bend the stems with your fingers to discard the hardest and most fibrous part. Dry off.
Heat the grill without oil and add the asparagus. Depending on their thickness, cook for 4-6 minutes, turning them once or until they are lightly toasted on the outside.
While the asparagus is cooking, crumble the goat cheese with your fingers.
Place the asparagus on a plate, salt, sprinkle the crumbled cheese and the walnuts on top, dress with the vinaigrette and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. Serve immediately.
- Murcia courgettes style recipe: Zarangollo
- Lentils with fried egg and honey
The bittersweet aroma of the honey makes a perfect contrast to the spicy and oily lentils, meanwhile the mint gives us pleasant fresh intervals
Ingredients for 4 servings (cost about 1,5 € pp)
200 g lentils
1 small carrot, cut into small cubes
1 small onion, cut into small pieces
Honey, not too sweet (arbutus or chestnut)
Well, people think that lentils are the most easy to prepare legumes. But this is not true. Lentils have a very thin peel and must be boiled very gently, otherwise the starch they contain provokes a messy result.
So, simmering in well salted mineral water is what we need. When the lentils are soft, we remove them from the water and keep them covered with a plate.
Then, we have to prepare the aromatics of the dish, sub-frying the carrot and the onion. The aromatics must be tender and juicy, as well.
When all the vegetarian parts are ready, we put them in a wok with the cooking olive oil and the shredded peperoncino and we sauté them for a minute or two. We finish with small mint leaves.
Meanwhile, in a small pan with plenty of cooking extra virgin olive oil we fry the eggs, one at a time, aiming to create a crunchy white, while keeping the yolk liquid. We add salt (and pepper) right after each egg is done.
We put the lentils in the plate covering them with a fried egg and some honey, diluted with a little water.
