          1 large bunch of asparagus
          10 small new potatoes
          1 lemon
          fatfree ranch dressing
          sea salt
          fresh cilantro
          fresh dill
          Take a large bunch of asparagus.  Bend the stalks at the bottom 
          until the hard end snaps off.  Wash the stalks gently in cool 
          Take 10 small potatoes (the young ones with the tender skins. 
          MMMmmm!) Wash and cut in halves or quarters.  (The pieces should 
          be small and bite size in order to cook quickly.)
          Get out your wok.  Put the potatoes with water to cover and a 
          bit more in the wok.  Boil on high heat. Test the spuds for 
          doneness with a fork.  When they are nearly done, lay the 
          asparagus on top of the potatoes and put the cover on your wok.  
          Cook for about six minutes.  
          Pull the asparagus off the potatoes and rinse in cool water to 
          stop the cooking process.  Put them on a large serving dish.  
          Squeeze the juice of one whole lemon over them.  Serve with 
          fatfree ranch dressing.  
          Drain the new potatoes and dress with a little sea salt.  Cover 
          with chopped fresh cilantro and a little fresh dill.
