A salad is still a salad even if it's warm and doesn't have any lettuce greens. Very tasty and very substantial, it's a perfect well-rounded plant-powered dish that won't leave anyone hungry. This spice combination is a Morrocan-inspired one, but also works well with any other spices of preference such as tandoori, or curry spice blends.

6 asparagus, chopped

1 Tbsp olive oil

1 onion, peeled and finely sliced

1 garlic clove, minced
