Noodle Rosti topped with Asparagus Sauce means innovation all the way! Rosti is traditionally a Swiss breakfast prepared with grated potatoes. Here, the rosti is made of parboiled noodles cooked to a crisp with ginger, garlic, celery, spring onions, sesame seeds and other flavourful ingredients. Once a perfect golden brown, the rosti is topped with a pungent asparagus sauce prepared with a base of Chinese white sauce perked up with mint and coriander.
