No other vegetable signifies the arrival of Spring like asparagus.
In season in Australia from September to March, this little gem of a vegetable is loaded with nutrients from fiber, folate and vitamins A, C, E and K.
It's also packed with antioxidants, ranking it amongst some of the top vegetables for its ability to neutralize cell-damaging free radicals, potentially helping to slow the aging process.
Not bad, huh?
It's been arriving in my organic Ceres Veggie Box lately and I've been loving it for my lazy weekend breakfasts. Bringing back gorgeous memories of being in the tiny little village of Formangnac, France where asparagus made a significant and delicious contribution to our many many meals.
