It’s a pretty humble dish–any dish that’s main ingredient is eggs is pretty humble– but I wouldn’t hesitate serving this to any guests or even at a casual dinner party. The recipe below is only for two servings, but it’s easy to do some multiplication and make it for a crowd. Continue reading “Asparagus revuelto”
