P1450795For the tomato confit: put 12 cherry tomatoes into a pan covered with hot olive oil and wait till they burst open. Add one rosemary and one thyme branch, 1 tablespoon of honey, 1 toe of garlic and some sea salt and let the tomatoes cook at a very low temperature for 30 minutes.  P1450844P1450855Arrange the asparagus with tomatoes, radish slices and dips on a slate plate und put some bread crumbs above (looks like earth). You can just eat it with the dips you like, but here my suggestions:

Curry lime dip (yellow cup): mix 200 grams of greek yoghurt and 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise with 1 tablespoon of Madras curry powder. Cut fresh coriander and half a chili in small pieces and add them to the dip. Season the dip with some salt, sugar and a bit of lime juice.

Frankfurt green sauce (green cup): Chop 2 hard boiled eggs, add 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil, 120 grams of creme fraîche, 250 grams of greek yoghurt and some fresh mixed herbs and mix everything.  Season the dip with some salt, sugar and pepper. Done!
