Asparagus are the star of the menu starting from March until June. I especially like this Flemish asparagus. Of course because it is typical for the region where I come from. But also because it is so easy to make and has such a great taste. You will find many versions on the internet. Special about my version is that I separate the egg whites and the yolks. I like the way they are presented this way.
