Asparagus Omelette

Learn how to make Wild Asparagus Omelette

Hello everyone! 

Have you ever seen a wild asparagus plant? If you do not know it, they are not easy to identify in the field.

This wonderful vegetable begins to grow naturally at the end of February. Still now, with the increased hours of sunshine and the rains that we had in recent days, the quality and flavour of the asparagus are unbeatable.

When I went to the market this morning, the greengrocer had a great variety of vegetables. And among all of them, the beautiful green of the wild asparagus caught my attention.

Wild Asparagus

I love asparagus; whenever I eat or cook them, I remember my good friends, the Gila-Sánchez family. Ramón "El Repe", is the father of the family. He loves walking in nature and collecting all kinds of herbs and food that the land gives us naturally. Olives, asparagus, fennel, herbs, escargots...He always has something amazing at hands.

Every year at this time, he collects wild asparagus in the field around our village of Madrid, (Velilla de San Antonio ). He is a good asparagus picker, believe me. When I lived there with my family, he always had a big hand of asparagus to gift to us. So my mother use to cook them and make for us a nice Omelette, "Tortilla".

Thank you very much, Ramón, for all those asparagus you gave us.  I have a lot of great memories with your family. You and Mary always took care of me like a son. And Thanks Mum for these excellent omelettes that you always make.
