It is asparagus season in Belgium!! Which is why you see markets (and supermarket) shelves overflowing with gorgeous white asparagus (otherwise known as “wit goud” or white gold in Flemish because it is considered a treasure!).
Some say that the white asparagus has a milder & sweeter taste than its green counterpart… while for me, it is all about the preparation and cooking methods!
Now I don’t really have preference on the white versus green asparagus variety… but I sure do love seeing these recipes popping up on some of our community blogs…
