If you aren’t familiar with asparagus, it’s a perennial vegetable known for its slender, spear-like shoots. It belongs to the lily family, and is usually green in color (though there are some purple and white varieties available if you fancy trying something a bit different…). Asparagus is known for its tender texture and sweet and earthy flavor. It works well in a wide variety of dishes, whether in a main, starter or side. It can be steamed, roasted, grilled, sautéed, or even eaten raw if you want to.

When it comes to asparagus health benefits, it’s got a lot going for it. It provides significant amounts of vitamins A, C, E, and K, as well as folate, iron, and fiber. Asparagus really is a great addition to your diet, and it’s well worth experimenting with recipes while it’s at its freshest and best in the spring months.
