Spring arrives very soon, and I am thrilled that my local farmer’s market is beginning to fill up with delicious green vegetables.  My recent shopping trip scored some amazingly fresh asparagus, pak choy, leeks, scallions and dinosaur kale.  I needed a recipe that I could incorporate all these beauties, so I started thinking about making…
