Asparagus is probably the hottest vege star here, during Spring, and there are even talk shows about it! Before I forget, I thought I had better share some information from those shows I've watched.
Do you know?
Asparagus is a highly nuitritional vegetable, and consumption with high-protein food like meat and egg promotes growth and health.
For certain dishes, this vegetable is boiled during cooking, but it is said that boiling causes the nuitrients to escape into the boiling water. Unless the water used for boiling is being consumed, this nuitrient loss is obviously a waste. Gee... I didn't know that.
The best way to cook Asparagus is frying with oil. Oil promotes the function of nuitrients.
Now, about choosing the most delicious asparagus you can find. Look at the picture above, see the triangular portion? The rule is to look for those with equilateral triangles, not elongated or tall triangles. The asparagus in the picture above is a sample of a good one. I hope that the diagram drawn within the picture helps.
Enjoy your asparagus!
