Eggplant Dip - Mediterranean flavour

August 2nd, 2018 | side dishes

Really wild wild herbs salad

What they sell on the domestic German markets as “wild asparagus” botanically is no asparagus. Of course wild asparagus exists, and I know it from my time in northern Spain, where we collected the wild asparagus in nature.
