Created on Saturday, 22 February 2014 17:44

Asparagus.that delicious Sprintime vegetable that we eagerly wait for- fresh- and consume copiously in many ways. A great source of vitamins K, C,and B6, potassioum, thiamin, and fiber. Always look for stems that are firm, and tips that are deep green or purple in color. White asparagus is grown underground to inhibit its development of chlorophyll content, and has a more delicate flavor and texture. So many ways to cook it, but simple is just fine, with a little butter and olive oil, and parmesan cheese topping. It pairs wonderfully with Salmon in Puff Pastry, and both of these can be found in the recipe section on this site! Buon appetito!
