Asparagus Omelette

Learn how to make Wild Asparagus Omelette

Welcome to the taste of spring! On this occasion, I am pleased to share with you a recipe that evokes fond memories and celebrates the arrival of the new season. An easy-to-make dish that combines delicious wild asparagus with the comfort of a homemade omelette.

Inspired by times gone by and the bountiful harvests of my good friend Ramón "El Repe" and his family. Every year at this time, he collects wild asparagus in the field around our village of Madrid, (Velilla de San Antonio). When I lived there with my family, he always had a handful of asparagus to gift to us.

Ramon Garcia


Thank you very much, Ramón, for all the 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.
