Nothing says ‘straightforward entertaining’ like a one-tray bake. And when it incorporates seasonal components, all the higher! We love baking asparagus, because it provides a completely completely different flavour to serving it steamed.
Additionally, this dish is well made-vegan by swapping the hen thighs for a drained jar of Daring Bean White Beans after the potatoes have cooked for 20 minutes.
