This month's challenge for our cooking group is white asparagus.
White Asparagus are grown under soil in order to prevent photosynthesis. This prevents the asparagus from turning green. It is purported to produce a more tender finished product. I am not sure, but I do love it.
For this dish I decided to make a thick potage with organic vegetable broth, white asparagus, leeks, and a pinch of Spanish Saffron.
