  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 shallots large size and sliced
  • ½ teaspoon Noubess Hot Sauce
  • 1 1/4 pounds asparagus spears trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon Herbes de Provence
  • 8 oz or 1 cup roasted chestnuts
  • Salt to taste


  • Heat oil in a heavy large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Add shallots and Hot Sauce and cook for 1 - 2 minutes.
  • Add asparagus in a single layer; using tongs or a spatula, toss to coat.
  • Add herbes de Provence, and toss to mix all the ingredients. Sauté, often turning, until crisp-tender and beginning to brown in spots, about 8 minutes. Add very little water if necessary. Cover and lower heat if they need to cook longer.
  • Add roasted chestnuts and sprinkle salt, stir, and serve.



  • The chestnuts are not easily substituted with other nuts because of their butty and sweet taste. Most nuts tend to be crunchy and not buttery. For the asparagus to be palatable, you need the texture of the chestnuts. Only two nuts may be good substitutes: roasted walnuts and roasted cashews. It would be best to cook them a bit longer with asparagus so they can soften, but timing will be an issue. You would not want the asparagus to overcook, so cook the ingredients on low to medium heat.
  • Chestnuts go well with red meat and salads.
  • Prepare all the ingredients in advance, as the asparagus will cook fast.
  • There's no need to balance the asparagus; cut the stalk small enough, about 1 inch or two, so the pieces can cook evenly.
  • Make the dish with other seasonings, such as Italian seasoning, Beau Monde, and a mixture of fine herbs.
  • No major preparation for the chestnuts; remove them from the packaging and add them to the pan.
  • Enjoy this dish with roasted or grilled meat or poultry.
  • This is a great side dish to serve during Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner.
  • Always add the store-bought roasted chestnuts last because they are already cooked. Adding the nuts last will add the creaminess the dish needs.
