    Pan-fried Cheesy Asparagus

    Many people cook this dish in the oven, but I don’t want to heat up the oven just to make this dish. Pan-frying is more energy-efficient. The top of the cheese won’t get browned when cooked in a frying pan, but the bottom gets browned. For an everyday meal, this is good enough for me. …

    Don’t judge it by its colour. This soup is absolutely delicious! I first made this soup by adding some green vegetables to ‘My Mother’s Potato Soup’ to make it more nutritious.
