Gnocchi with green asparagus

White asparagus is also very popular in Italy. Every restaurant has a Risotto with asparagus on the menu and we have eaten there several times! But what we haven’t seen is ‘gnocchi with asparagus’. You can easily make it yourself. Moreover, so ready. You can also replace the gnocchi with ready-made tortelloni filled with spinach from the refrigerator; delicious too!

What is the difference between white and green asparagus?

White Asparagus vs. Green Asparagus: What’s the Difference? Well, it all starts with their growth. White asparagus growing hidden underground, protected from strong sunshine, giving them their distinctive white pale color. Green asparagus, on the other hand, grows bravely above the ground, bathed in sunlight. This creates their vibrant green hue.

Difference in taste

But it doesn’t stop there! In addition to color, there is also a difference in taste. White asparagus tastes sweet, delicate and mild, with a hint of bitterness. They almost melt in your mouth with their soft and juicy texture. Green asparagus, on the other hand, has a more prominent flavour, with nutty and grassy notes that awaken your taste buds. They are sturdier and more mature than their pale counterparts.

Difference in preparation

But let’s not forget how to get them done! White asparagus require much more preparation, as they must be peeled first before you can cook them. This is not necessary at all with green asparagus. You just need to remove the bottom hard part before throwing them in the pan or putting them on the grill.
