When I first moved to Berlin the weather was just getting warmer and it seemed that outside every restaurant a sign boasted its Spargel Menu. What the hell is Spargel and why was it so important? I later learned Spargel is Asparagus and it was highly prized as it marked the beginning of Spring and warmer days to come.
Last week when I received my Farm Box luscious green stalks were pointing right out. Delighted I was, as I knew Spring had arrived.
This is the easiest recipe ever, hence the name of this post. The brightness and freshness of the asparagus is a pleasant change from the heavy and hearty greens we have been using. Spargel time!!
