You can use wild hops (Humulus lupulus). I don't know if its growing in your part of the world. It usually grows near some water.

You can make a cream soup out of it - its very good.
Or (I like this way) you can get some butter, put it in a pan, add wild hops (a handfull). Cook for about 5-10 min, and add some scrambled eggs. [thumb]

Make sure that you use only the young parts on the top. These are soft. We pick them only when they start to grow - in spring.
Be basicly prepare them the same way as belushi (asparagus).
