If you are in need of a side dish, Asparagus is a fabulous & easy way to brighten your plate. I love a crunch, so I personally love Asparagus blanched with a drizzle of olive oil, salt, and pepper. Another easy and quick way to prepare it is to bake the Asparagus for 20 minutes with olive oil, salt, and pepper. It's a great addition to any salad, or to be used as a replacement to chips with any dip.
Asparagus is a great source of fiber, folate, and vitamins A, C, E, and K. It's also packed with antioxidants and has the ability to neutralize cell-damaging free radicals.
I recently made Minamalist Baker's Vegan Asparagus pea soup. It took less than 30 minutes to make and will cost you under $10. In my case, I already had everything at home, so it was super convenient. I substituted coconut milk for the almond milk. It's makes for a fabulous weeknight dish.
