This recipe sounds very interesting and I dearly love asparagus. My only suggestions: I'd leave out the flour and use potato flakes instead. Also, instead of cooking the asparagus in water I'd probably cook it in some kind of stock. IMO, all water is good for in a kitchen is making coffee or making stock, or washing dishes. I never cook with plain old water. (08/20/2005)
