Asparagus, scientifically known as Asparagus officinalis, is a flowering plant that belongs to the lily family. The vegetable’s vibrant, slightly earthy flavour is merely one of the many reasons it is so popular.
It is also highly regarded for its nutritional benefits and has potential cancer-fighting and diuretic qualities. One serving provides you with 100 percent of your daily vitamin K requirements, and it’s also packed with vitamins A, C, E and B-6, as well as iron, copper, calcium and fiber. Enjoy one of spring’s brightest stars with our best asparagus recipes.
