The season for British asparagus is short so let’s make the best of it. They are delicious, versatile and super healthy. They also cook very quickly.
In Season – from mid April to mid June
How to Cook It – boiled, steamed, blanched, microwaved, grilled, roasted. Asparagus cook quickly. Remember to cut the “tougher” ends (opposite end of the spear) before cooking them (simply bend them and they will snap where the tough part meets the tender part)
How to Serve It – on its own with a simple drizzle of olive oil or added to salads, quiches, stir-fries, risottos, eggs, pasta etc…
Healthy Because – high in vitamins B6, C, K, E and A + is a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Protein, Calcium, Magnesium, Zinc and Selenium.
