Asparagus with tomato bacon stew (from TK's Ad Hoc)
Jen was generous enough to give us the rest of her jarred tomatoes since she was leaving for Sweden,
so we thought this dish would make the perfect lunch since we had the asparagus.
Here is my rendition:
Cook 1'' lardons in cast iron with a touch of water (so it doesn't get crispy), transfer bacon onto paper towel and fry some chopped onions and leeks in fat until translucent, add tomatoes and reduce sauce, blend half of the mixture in blender then return to pan, add bacon, serve over asparagus that has been simmered in salted veg stock
