These asparagus recipes prove that this vegetable is epitome of easy! Practically no prep work is needed and it cooks in a flash. It is a delicious and nutritious addition to your vegetable rotation and should especially enjoyed when it is in season locally.

Why eat asparagus? No question about it, asparagus is nutrient dense. Actual numbers vary depending on the variety and who tested it, but all agree that it is an excellent source of vitamin K and a good source of vitamin A, vitamin C, folate, iron, copper, and selenium. It is also good for gut health as it contains a considerable amount of insoluble fiber, which adds bulk and supports regular bowel movements, and also a small amount of insoluble fiber and prebiotic inulin to support a healthy gut microbiome.
