Spring brings us a bountiful, new selection of seasonal, fresh produce to enjoy, but asparagus has become one of our favorite ways of welcoming spring. Asparagus recipes run the gamut from breakfast to dinner, and their fresh and earthy flavor makes them very versatile for use in many different dishes.
- Asparagus isn’t just delicious, it’s also a nutritional powerhouse full of fiber, folate, antioxidants and vitamins A, C, E and K.
- Roast, grill or stir-fry your asparagus. These quick-cooking, waterless methods will preserve the fabulous nutritional content and antioxidant power of asparagus.
Look to asparagus when you need a quick and easy side dish — these slender stalks require only minimal preparation. They cook up quickly with olive oil and salt and pepper on the grill or roasted in the oven. Look for thinner stalks if you want to sauté on the stove top or work them into salad recipes.
