Asparagus are still in season so make sure you grab some before it comes to an end. I got a fresh bunch from the market for £0.50!! You can’t go wrong with that.
This lovely vegetable not only taste great but it’s also packed full with all sorts of wonderful nutrients: folate, Vitamins A, C,E , K and B-complex, along with fibre, potassium , zinc an iron. Thanks to all this, asparagus have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Your body will thank you for it!
I like green asparagus best roasted. I added them to steamed new potatoes along with a salsa verde to bring some freshness and zing to the dish. The recipe makes for more salsa verde that you need for this but you use the left over drizzled over lettuce or rocket salad or simply on toast.
I’d like to say that the kids loved it but they didn’t go anywhere near it!
