The hop sprouts in Trieste are the wild asparagus.

I served these spaghetti to welcome non-vegetarians: they were so pleased that afterwards they let me have a bottle of organic olive oil with chili and informed themselves about what to eat as a vegetarian... If you like spicy plates success is guaranteed!

Purtroppo sia con il termine bruscandoli (o bruscansoli) che con asparagi selvatici s'intendono cose diverse a seconda del luogo in cui ci troviamo... per alcuni sono germogli di luppolo, per altri di pungitopo (questo, solo nella provincia di Verona!), ma sono entrambi deliziosi.

I "bruscandoli" in Lombardia vengono chiamati "loertis". Germogliano verso marzo-aprile, si trovano facilmente lungo le rive dei fossi.
