Asparagus is probably something everyone likes and everyone looks forward to the moment when you can buy it in any store. I personally do not have a favorite, I love both white and green asparagus, the cream of white asparagus is an absolute miracle, and the green one in risotto conquers everyone’s heart.

ASPARAGUS – choose these firm asparagus with stiff tips. You can cut the lower part or just break them, they will break exactly where the asparagus is good to eat.
VEGAN BACON – I absolutely love this delicacy very much. It is sensational and I reach for it whenever it is on sale in the store. Instead, you can also use baked tofu, seitan or other substitutes.
