Asparagus is a wonder-food! It is a great source of Vitamin K which is the vitamin that regulates blood clotting. However, if you are on a blood-thinning medication, it is advisable to check with your health-care provider to make sure asparagus is on your approved list.

In addition, asparagus is a great natural diuretic, nourishes the digestive tract, is a good source of fiber plus is considered an anti-inflammatory food with the extra bonus of being an antioxidant. All in all, this food should be showing up on your table a few times a month!

This dish comes together rather quickly…the risotto needs to be slow-cooked so try not to rush it!

ENJOY!

For the second part of my  Broccoli Slaw plate here is the recipe for the Cous-Cous Salad.  This is delicious salad, served warm or cold and is based on Ina Garten’s Recipe. Add some veggies you love other than the ones in the recipe. The possibilities are virtually limitless.

ENJOY!

The one veggie my grandsons will eat, consistently, is broccoli. They don’t particularly like broccoli slaw, due to the texture. I found that by pulsing it in the food processor makes all the difference. This recipe comes together in literally 5 minutes and stays in the refrigerator for a few days.

Also, I paired it with an Ina Garten recipe passed on from my sweet niece. I did a little tweaking with the original but for the most part, it is all Ina!

The first recipe is for the broccoli slaw and the second for the Cous-Cous Salad.

ENJOY!
