Oh! How Green!

I live in a shady meadow
 under the birch 
which is whispering to me at dawn 

Scrambled eggs with asparagus

eggs, asparagus, Parmesan cheese, olive oil, salt and pepper
quantities can be used of your discretion :)
Wash asparagus, cut off the ends and place on a baking sheet. Pour olive oil,season lightly and sprinkle with grated cheese and bake in temp.350 degrees 15 min. Fry scrambled eggs and serve with asparagus.

Cream of asparagus soup

2 bunches of asparagus
2 large onions
2 cups vegetable stock
salt and pepper
glass of white wine
50 ml. heavy cream
4 potatoes
clove of garlic
grated Parmesan cheese for sprinkling

Wash the asparagus, cut off the hardened ends and throw it out. Then cut in pieces and save some upper pieces for later. Pour broth into a pot and when it boils throw to the broth, chop potatoes and asparagus. Garlic and onion stew on a spoon of olive oil in a pan then add to soup.Boil one minute and season with salt and pepper, pour white wine and heavy cream. When the soup has cooled, mix for a puree. Blanch upper pieces of asparagus (thrown into boiling water for a minute then drain off and toss into a bowl of ice water) and serve with soup. My asparagus disappeared mysteriously before I could do a photo..After that I heard - "this is about salad you are talking about?". So exactly a "salad" here takes on an entirely different matter :) Enjoy!
