  • 8 corn tortillas
  • a bunch of asparagus (250 g/1/2 lb)
  • 2 tablespoons rapeseed or olive oil divided
  • 90 g extra mature cheddar (1 ½ cups) or cheese of choice, grated
  • 6 radishes
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 batch 5-Minute Vibrant Spring Sauce
  • watercress or pea shoots to finish


  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Cut each tortilla into 8 pieces and spread out on a large baking sheet (or two, depending on the size) so that there is minimal overlap. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon oil and distribute evenly with your hands so that each chip is lightly coated. Sprinkle with salt to taste and place in the oven for 10-15 minutes, until crisp and golden. Switch the oven to grill once the tortilla chips are ready.

  • Whilst the tortilla chips are cooking prepare the toppings. Snap the woody ends from the asparagus spears and chop into 1 inch pieces. Heat the remaining oil in a frying pan and add the asparagus pieces along with a pinch of salt and pepper. Sauté for 3-5 minutes, depending on the thickness of the spears, until tender and golden. Finely slice the radishes and dice the avocado.
