The new cookbook to be released on April 20th from Eating Well EatingWell in Season: The Farmers' Market Cookbook, just keeps on giving. It talks about asparagus growing 10 inches in a single day if the conditions are right. The conditions must be right near Monterey as we are blessed to have big bunches of organic asparagus grown near there every Friday at our hospital's farmers' market. The farmer says he will be there until early June. I will be there with him and hopefully so will many others. The first spring recipe in the cookbook is for a wonderful asparagus soup. It used ingredients I never would have considered in the soup like lite coconut milk and red potatoes. But these additions made for a creamy and tasty soup. It's the season — try this one.
