Toss together in a medium pot. 1 pound of asparagus cut into small pieces, 1 medium onion chopped, 1 cup celery, 2 TBS butter, and 4 cups of vegetable broth ( or chicken broth), salt and pepper, add a pinch of ground nutmeg.

One thing I love about this pie is that it is fast. When my son came home he whipped up a pie crust in such little time, I had to praise him and then copy him. I found out it was Meg's recipe.
For the yummy inside just cut up rhubarb, add 1/2 cup sugar, 2TBS maple syrup, 2 TBS of quick cook tapioca or 1/4 cup flour. Mix this together and pour into bottom pie crust. Top with 2 TBS butter broken into bits and sprinkled on top. Put on the top crust and say thank you when you get the compliments.
