Author Notes: This vegetarian dish pairs exceedingly well with a good friend & a glass of wine.
Easy & Quick -- especially with an immersion blender.
Versatile & Forgiving .... Combine your greens if you wish -- it's Spring, take a leap!
(Lacking a full 2 cups of "green", I've supplemented my available asparagus
with a handful of peas, a small peeled red potato and an onion.)
Works as an entree, bite-sized appetizer, breakfast leftover or brunch addition.
*picnic & toddler friendly
