Asparagus 

Nothing heralds spring like the harvest of fresh asparagus spears. Fresh asparagus is rich in vitamins K, C and A, as well as potassium, fiber and heart-healthy folate. Asparagus also has high concentrations of heart-healthy compounds such as B vitamins, folate and rutin, which strengthens capillary walls, and contains the highest amounts of cancer-fighting glutathione of any food.

Asparagus is delicious boiled, roasted, fried, baked or raw. Enjoy asparagus three ways this spring with these asparagus recipes.
