Our youngest daughter has found a new food love – asparagus. So, I thought I’d share a collection of ten super healthy and delicious asparagus recipes with our daughter and you. I hope you will each find a new favorite asparagus recipe! Plus, wait til you find out about all the nutritional benefits!
I never really cared much for asparagus until I made Garlic Roasted Asparagus with Hollandaise Sauce just this past May. My friend Ashlyn from Belle of the Kitchen had shared her Garlic Parmesan Roasted Asparagus recipe and it looked so appetizing that I just had to give it a try.
Health Benefits of Asparagus
Plus, my husband loves asparagus and I enjoy preparing food that he likes. And asparagus not only tastes delicious, but it’s good for you, too. It’s packed full of fiber, folate, vitamins A, C, E and K, as well as chromium.
Not only is it loaded with nutrients, but scientists believe asparagus can help fight cancer (along with avocado, kale and Brussels sprouts), is full of antioxidants, it’s brain food (literally) and it’s a natural diuretic.
