Asparagus Rafts (Step By Step)

Usually I bake the Asparagus with little olive oil, salt and pepper for 10 min. My son loves these 'Green Strings'. And some times I make a Asparagus Fry (Indian Style), it's combination with white rice is very yummy for sure.

But I wanted to go little creative with Asparagus today and when I was browsing for some ideas I have come across this on Disney Family Site, I have jumped up and started making these immediately.

Serving Tip:
This will be an interesting snack for kiddo's lunch box Or a Crunchy Side Dish with your main course Or let them float in yummy Avocado Soup. However you serve, it sure looks fun for the kids. Give it a Try, Here is the recipe for you, Enjoy!

All Purpose Flour - 2 Tbsp
Egg - 1
Bread Crumbs - 1/3 cup
Asparagus - 1 bunch ( 10 to 15 in count)
Parmesan Cheese - 2 Tbsp
Tooth Picks - 5 to 10

1. Take the Flour, Whisked Egg, Bread Crumbs in 3 different shallow plates

2. Trim the Asparagus Bottoms and Wash and Pat Dry them.
3. Take a tooth pick and insert into 4 Asparagus by  setting them side by side. One at the top and one at the bottom (as show in the picture)

4. Now roll this in the flour and dip in egg wash and dust with bread crumbs
5. Follow the same procedure until for all the asparagus strings.

6. Place them on the baking sheet.
7. Bake at 350 F for 10 min. Sprinkle some Parmesan cheese and bake for 5 more minutes.
8. Take them out and cut into middle, take out the tooth picks and serve them.

That's It Yum! Yum! Asparagus Rafts are ready in minutes. Sit back and Enjoy when your little one is munching on all these veggies.

Do you think my Son finished all of these? You Bet! :-)

Take care until next time
