The first taste of spring, asparagus is low in calories, contains no cholesterol and is a good source of folic acid, potassium, dietary fibre, and rutin. The best asparagus tends to be early growth, meaning first of the season.
Asparagus is a very delicious side dish to follow for dinner or brunch. Roasted asparagus is the perfect springtime side dish as it is simple to throw together while your main dish cooks. Eat plain or go all out with lemon, mint, red pepper flakes, and a light shaving of Parmesan
