Vegetable Dishes

Asparagus are the vegetable obtained from one species within the genus Asparagus, specifically the young shoots of Asparagus officinalis. It has been used from very early times as a culinary vegetable, owing to its delicate flavour and diuretic properties. There is a recipe for cooking asparagus in the oldest surviving book of recipes, Apicius's 3rd century CE De re coquinaria, Book III.

Nutrition

Nutritionally, asparagus is one of the more balanced vegetables. It is the leading provider of folic acid in all vegetables. Folic acid is necessary for blood cell formation, growth, and prevention of liver disease. Asparagus is also very low in calories; each stalk contains less than 4 calories. It contains no fat or cholesterol, and is very low in sodium. Asparagus is a great source of potassium and fiber. Asparagus also provides rutin, which strengthens the capillary walls.
