This is perhaps one of the best delicacies that we get year after year. They take a few years to establish before enjoying, but once they have matured, they produce in high amounts. Asparagus is high in a number of vitamins and important minerals including vitamins K, C, A, and folic acid. It is a close tie between asparagus and spinach in the amount of folic acid provided per serving and really you can’t go wrong with either food. Consider having some asparagus as part of a healthy diet and you can enjoy it with a lean steak or grilled chicken.
