  • 1/2 bunch asparagus , about 250 g
  • 1/4 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 tsp dark sesame oil
  • pinch salt
  • pinch freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 large flour tortillas , preferably sun-dried tomato or spinach flavour
  • 4 thin slices deli-style ham


  • Partially fill a large frying pan with water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Meanwhile, snap tough ends from asparagus and discard. In a bowl, stir mayonnaise with Dijon, oil, salt and pepper. Add asparagus to boiling water. Boil until tender-crisp, 3 to 4 minutes. Immediately plunge into a bowl of cold water. Drain, then pat dry with paper towels. Spread mayonnaise mixture over tortillas. Cover each with 2 overlapping slices of ham. Divide asparagus and place spears along 1 edge of each tortilla. Roll up and fasten with toothpicks. Rolls will keep well, covered and refrigerated, up to 4 hours. When ready to serve, slice in half.
