Taking Stock of Asparagus

June 25th, 2014 No Comments Tags: , , , ,

As the produce department shifts into summer mode, fresh asparagus is there standing on guard for thee! This is one staple vegetable I have on hand that requires minimal fussing to steam while accompanying most any meal whether it’s a BBQ night, a pasta night with parmesan cheese sprinkled on top or diced in bite sized pieces in a salad or omelette. Asparagus soup is one of my fave’s too.

Who needs to drone on about all of the nutritional benefits when it tastes so divine, but I will share a few nuggets. A mere handful of these stocks provide 25% of your daily folate, not to mention B6 and Vitamin C, inulin. Why take all of the allure out of such a tasty food, but it’s good to know nonetheless?

If you don’t routinely stock up on this super veg, take stock and pick some up this week. They’re so easy to prepare you’ll wonder why you overlooked these spears of plenty. Enjoy!
