Omelet with Wild Asparagus

Recipe for omelete with wild asparagus

I do not know if you've ever seen wild asparagus, but when I did for the first time I was really amazed. They have nothing to do with the well-fed asparagus that you are used to buy from the market, thick as markers. No, these are very thin like weeds and on their top of they have a small finish with the flower buds. They taste really special, slightly bitter, perfectly if you ask me to be combined with some fresh eggs in a delicious omelet.

Omelet with wild asparagus (serves 1 person)


:: 1 bunch of wild asparagus

:: 2 eggs

:: onion

:: 1 medium lemon

:: salt, pepper, oregano

:: (optional) fresh lemon tree's leaves  (when saute they release a slightly sour,refreshing taste)


Firstly, cut and get rid of the very hard stems' bottoms of asparagus. Cut them in pieces, wash and toss them in boiling water for 2-3 minutes.

Then saute the onion in a pan and when it gets golden and nice, add the asparagus and mix. If you have access to a lemon tree, add some fresh, new leaves. Now break the eggs and either stir them to break the yolks and cook them faster or close the pan with a lid to cook the yolks only with vapors without having to flip the omelet and break them.

Your omelet is ready, serve with lemon and plenty of freshly ground pepper.
