A cold asparagus & herb 'omelette'


  • Gently whisk the eggs, cream, seasonings and fresh herbs with a fork.
  • Heat a knob of butter in a non-stick pan and cook thin omelettes, one at a time, adding a little butter to the pan between each one. Then drain separately on kitchen paper towels to cool.
  • At the same time, briefly cook the asparagus in a pot of lightly salted, boiling water. Then dunk them in iced water, before draining on paper towels.
  • Combine the sour cream, lemon juice, creamed horseradish and snipped chives.
  • Smear the 'omelettes' with the sour cream mixture, top with asparagus and roll up. Serve warm or at room temperature garnished with whole chives.
