- green asparagus – 300 gr
- carrots – 2
- fresh potatoes – 3-4
- fennel seeds – 2 tsp
- oregano – 1 tsp
- black pepper
- olive oil
Step 1. Start with peeling the carrots, then dice them into chunks. Don’t make the carrot pieces too big or too small, they should be equivalent to the size of asparagus.
Step 2. Get rid of the hard (white) part of asparagus, and cut the green part into pieces of equal size.
Step 3. If you use young organic potatoes, just cut them in similar size chunks with the skin, otherwise peel them before cutting.
Step 4. Peel and cut a little piece of ginger (2-3 cm) into small pieces.
Step 5. Put 2 spoons of olive oil in a big pan, add the ginger and wait for the oil to warm up. Add 2-3 spoons of fennel seeds (if you don’t like the taste of fennel you can use cumin), give it a nice stir. Add the chopped vegetables, mix it well. After that reduce the temperature, cover the pan with the lid and let it cook for about 15-20 minutes.
Step 6. When your vegetables are almost cooked, give it one more mix and add the final spices: 1 tsp of oregano, salt for your taste and freshly ground black pepper. Mix it once again and your colorful spring dish is ready!
