Among the veggies, asparagus is one of the most seasonal treats. Although a green fibrous watery stick, we consider them a special treat and there are so many special recipes including them. This is partly because of the seasonality (I must say I eat asparagus only a few times a year, only in season, and each of those times is very special).

Health benefits of aspargus

There are excellent reasons to eat asparagus. They are a superior source of essential vitamins like vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, and necessary minerals. Because they are high in fiber, they will help your digestion and the best weight loss ally. They are also known for helping reduce your blood pressure and therefore heart risks.

You can really show off when you invite your friends with asparagus. Blend them with some freshly prepared seafood, or make them in scallops with scallops prosciutto and browned butter. I promise your guests will remember them till next season!
