Oh yes they're back, the divine white asparagus. Yesterday we had the first taste of these very fresh harvested ones. I know many foodies are waiting for these to appear. There's a wide range of possible recipes, but "asperges à la Flamande" is very popular in Flanders, the part of Belgium where I live. Simply a mixture of melted butter, chopped parcely and chopped hardboiled egg, s&p. I also added some of my recently bought olive oil. It's a bit more work than cooking green ones as these whites have to be carefully peeled entirely, but tastewise the white ones are much more delicate. I wonder in which parts of the world you have these too? Any local or other recipes you like?
