Sous Vide Garlic Parmesan Asparagus

Anova Culinary

Asparagus season is all too short, so I do my best to make the most of it. Cooking this veggie sous vide results in a fresh, vibrant color that really adds a bright pop to your dinner plate. The sous vide method retains asparagus’s moisture while still producing a firm stalk cooked to perfection.

Carey Copeling created to discuss all things sous vide, from sharing ideas, to recipes and results. Before discovering sous vide, Carey hadn't been that into cooking, aside from BBQing in the backyard. In November 2015, he ordered his Anova and immediately cooked a steak – he was blown away with the results. Since then, his Anova hasn’t gotten a rest. He's cooked everything he can – veggies, fish, chicken, lamb, sausage, pork belly, seafood, beef, more beef, infused beverages, eggs…the list goes on. was created to share his experience with other passive cooks to see if the sous vide technique can be the conversion point to others as it was for him.
