Asparagus is healthy. It is full of nutrients. Many people go crazy over it. They will even stop by the side of the road if they see it growing wild anywhere. It can also be bought at the grocery store. It is easy to find nowadays because of it’s increase in popularity. There are many ways to cook it and it goes with other veggies and meats well.
- Asparagus is nutrient dense, low in calories and versatile.
- When purchasing asparagus, look for firm green spears that have compact tips with tight scales. Avoid spears with woody stems.
- The tip and 6-8 inches down from it is the most tender and delicious part of the asparagus. Bend it gently and the spear will naturally break at the end of the tender part.
