4 wedges


  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided

  • 8 ounces asparagus, trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces

  • ½ teaspoon salt, divided

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 1 pound frozen shredded potatoes


  1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add asparagus and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cook, stirring, until tender, about 3 minutes. Add butter and potatoes; stir to combine. Press the mixture gently into a single layer. Cook until crispy on one side, about 10 minutes.

  2. Slide the rösti onto a clean plate. Drizzle the top with the remaining 2 tablespoons oil, then invert into the pan so the crispy side is up. Cook until crispy on the other side, 8 to 10 minutes more. Slide onto a serving plate and sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cut into 6 wedges.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
