A simple, delicious and healthy dish with green, white asparagus and goji berries served with a homemade broth. It's naturally gluten-free, keto-friendly, and low calorie.
The sweet, slightly tart goji berries, aka wolfberries or Berry of Happiness , are among the healthiest fruits in the world as they are bursting with vitamins, anti-oxidants, minerals and relatively low on sugar. They are considered mood-lifting and support the work of the kidneys and liver.
Asparagus, the king vegetable of the Spring, is a good source of the dietary fiber, vitamin C and folate. This low-calorie green superfood may help fight cancer and slim you down.

  • 1-2 tbsp Goji berries
  • 400 g White asparagus, trimmed
  • 300 g Green asparagus, trimmed
  • 1 tsp Sea salt
  • 1 tsp Butter
  • 300 ml Homemade broth (I used chicken broth)
  • 1/2 tsp Potato starch or cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp Water
  • 1 tbsp Flat parsley, chopped
  1. Soak the goji berries in some water for 10 minutes. Drain and set aside. Wash the asparagus, pat dry and cut off the ends. Peel the white asparagus completely, the green only in the lower third.
  2. Fill a large skillet or saucepan with some water. Bring it to a boil. Add in salt and butter. Lower the trimmed white asparagus into the water and cook for 5 minutes. Add in the green asparagus and cook for 3-5 more minutes. Drain well and place them on a serving platter or bowl.
  3. Bring the homemade broth to a simmer. Add in softened goji berries and cook briefly. Dissolve the potato starch in 2 tablespoons of water. Add the starch solution to the broth and cook until it thickens a bit. Turn off the heat and pour the broth over the asparagus. Sprinkle some chopped parsley over. Enjoy!

What an original idea! I love asparagus and just bought some this afternoon. But I don't have Goji berries on hand...

As long as the asparagus is young and fresh, I am all for it. Eating it reminds me of food prepared at home.

Probably my favourite vegetable, rather seasonal in eastern Australia and hard to get iin its white variety! Beautifully simple way of presenting . . . cannot wait for winter to come and be gone . . .

Yo prefiero los espárragos trigueros a los blancos, pero probaría tu receta tal cual la presentas porque tampoco tiene desperdicio y con esa buena mano que tienes en la cocina, seguro que me sorprende.
Un beso.

White asparagus always sold as "premium" here. Some seasons ago, we had a chance to try purple asparagus too.
