Spring Produce: Asparagus

 

Raw, roasted, blanched, sautéed, or grilled; there is a way to cook asparagus for everyone. Typically served with hollandaise, butter, cheese or raw as a salad topper, you just can’t go wrong placing asparagus on your next menu. An herbaceous perennial closely related to the onion and garlic family; asparagus is a nutritional powerhouse. A good source of many vitamins and minerals, it is a good source of vitamin B6, beta carotene, niacin and folic acid. Normally green in color, purple asparagus is a variant known for its sweeter flavor, as much as 20% higher in natural sugars. Cooking purple asparagus will change its color to green but won’t change its sugar content. Next time it’s your turn to have friends over or just a family meal, reach for the asparagus and try this recipe why don't you?
