How to surprise yourself – make an asparagus for a dinner.

fresh green asparagus, health food

I never liked asparagus, maybe because the Russian name sounds not so pretty. I tried it only once in one Laos restaurant and like the taste.

Yesterday doing shopping I saw this vegetable and can not walk away. I had no idea how to cook it, and prepare it by my own. I was surprised how asparagus easy to cook and how it great to eat.

Not only because it is delicious. Asparagus is low in calories, contains no cholesterol and is very low in sodium. It is also a good source of vitamins, calcium, magnesium and zinc, and a very good source o fdietary fiber and protein.
