Cooking Instructions

Wrap 3 green beans, 1 asparagus spear and 1 broccoli spear in 2 rashers of bacon, securing one side with toothpicks. Repeat with the remaining beans, asparagus, broccoli and bacon. Rub the bundles with the sugar.

Heat the oil in a large non-stick pan and cook the bundles for 5 minutes, turning often. Drain on kitchen paper.

To make the sauce, heat the butter in a pan and sauté the garlic for 1 minute. Add the chilli flakes, orange or naartjie juice and zest and bring to the boil. Stir in half the Gorgonzola, then set aside to cool slightly.

Arrange the bundles on a platter, top with the remaining cheese and drizzle over the sauce.
