Who else loves asparagus? I wish it didn’t have such a short season, but hey, now is the time to enjoy it as much as possible because it disappears at the end of this month. Asparagus is an excellent source of potassium, vitamin A, folic acid, vitamins C and A and certain B vitamins.
If you have issues with water retention, you may want to try adding asparagus to your diet as it is a natural diuretic. Asparagus loses its nutrients and freshness within a few days of purchasing so make sure you eat as soon as you buy it, to get the best out of it.
I can be quite boring with asparagus, I tend to steam it every time because that’s the way I enjoy it best. You can roast it with oil, herbs and spices or you can stir fry it with garlic, spring onions and mushrooms for a tasty side dish.
I enjoyed my asparagus with a prawn curry and boiled rice. The recipe for this is super simple, you can find it on my blog. Tap the link in my bio or swipe up on my stories. https://somiigbene.com/prawn-laska-curry-with-steamed-rice-asparagus/ #prawnrecipes #simplefood #simpledinner
