Asparagus and cheese tortilla filling

art8778
  •  2 c. thinly sliced asparagus PLUS 1/2 c. of asparagus tips.
  • 1 bunch scallions, both green and white parts, thinly sliced
  • 1 c. cheese, either coarsely grated or crumbled*

Steam the asparagus or cook in a little boiling water until just barely tender, then immediately rinse under cold water until the pieces are cool. Drain thoroughly on a tea towel. Reserve the tips separately for garnish.

Add the cooled asparagus pieces, the scallion and the cheese to the beaten egg mixture, stirring to make sure everything is well combined and there are no lumps.

Garnish with the reserved tips.

*Many kinds of cheese work well in this, from Swiss and Gouda to chevre and Feta.
