Don't Spare the Asparagus- It's Spring!

One thing I love about Spring is the natural veggies that come out and are in Season. I love asparagus but just cook it the usual way and eat it with a bit of butter, salt and pepper and sometimes- with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese! Next is leeks and love them in a spring soup that my kids used to call green soup! The green soup is usually made up of potatoes and leeks but sometimes I add celery and half a tart apple- very delicious! My other Spring vegetable that is delicious is fiddleheads but- fiddle dee dee- not every grocery carries them so this year I am on the hunt for them! I do love greens and often crave them although I don't eat salads every day. Do you like Spring vegetables and what's your favourite? Time to wake up your green appetite and get strong for those summer storms!

@MarymargII Asparagus must be always steamed first, then you can serve them with eggs topping with melted butter and Parmesan, or add the asparagus to a risotto, even fried asparagus are very good. You have to coat the steamed asparagus in very fine cornmeal and then fry, like you do with the okra.
