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!

When I think spring, it usually conjures up scents of lemon. The clean, fresh scent is a welcome addition to the beginning of the warm weather season.

And lemon on asparagus is absolutely amazing and is the perfect melding of fruit and vegetable. I baked the asparagus in the oven but it is just as good on the grill. Be careful not to overcook because the vegetable becomes tough and stringy.

I paired with rice noodles cooked with low-fat coconut milk but any rice or noodle work. The asparagus is also great on top of a salad so you may want to double-up the recipe.

ENJOY!

Not quite sure where this idea came from today but it is certainly a keeper. I like the melding of flavors and textures.

You can serve on fresh greens, as pictured, or alone as a side dish.  I also topped mine with pine nuts but for those with nut allergies, they are definitely optional.

ENJOY!
