    • I don’t know how they will compare since I don’t think I have tried the sparoge. I will have to look around to see if we have that here. Will let you know if I find any… I brought these from a store. I would love to pick these from a garden, but alas, no such luck…

      • Yes it is. Look; these http://dlcsmanagement.wordpress.com/2012/04/28/vega/ are the same as you bought. These are Dutch(,from a pot). The sparoge from the other post are Croatian (but also could have been Slovenian) and wild. Freshly picked in the forest. There’s nooo way i could find anything similar to these in The Netherlands. i think. It’s the same thing but it’s not 😉 I guess the ones you bought up here are a bit sweeter and the wild sparoge are very very bitter. Liek anything good; I love them all 😉

        • oh yup. these are definitely the same. i do want to try the wild ones though. those definitely look different and want to taste how bitter they are. cool~ 🙂

    • Hm..interesting. I look the word up and it’s suppose to mean the same thing, but your veggie in the dish look so different… Wondering if there’s different species in the same veg family.

  1. Mmm, asparagus…. They’re wonderful eaten with butter and salt. One of my favorite dishes to cook with asparagus is pasta mixed with spring veg (asparagus, peas etc), tossed in a little olive oil and topped with Parmesan cheese. Delicious!

    • Oh, not even in the markets? That’s kinda odd. How do you cook it in Texas? I love it grilled with a bit of olive oil and some sea salt. Very simple. I also like it in Chinese food where they cook it with black bean sauce with or without meat or tofu and mushrooms. Delicious.
