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!
My husband was getting ready to go out of town and I needed to whip up a quick dinner. I had some sliced mushrooms in the refrigerator and decided to make them the star attraction. I love just about anything Mexican and this dish is not too spicy. (Although, feel free to add some kick if that is your style!)
You can experiment with adding more ingredients, like black beans, corn or even Soyrizo. The possibilities are as big as your imagination.
Breakfast is supposedly the “most important meal of the day” which is why it should be both delicious and nutritious. I mean, after all, your body has been waiting at least 10 hours to be fed again!
These vegan discs of deliciousness are also gluten-free and oil-free which makes them a healthier option for pancake-lovers.
You can also opt to top them with fresh fruit or powdered sugar. My personal favorite topping is peanut butter! Because everything is better with peanut butter!
