I remember picking wild asparagus on the shore of the Platte River with my grandmother. I didn't appreciate asparagus then as much as I do now. Asparagus is a prebiotic which means that it feeds the good bacteria in the intestinal lining. It's also a low glycemic vegetable, so eat up! The number one nutrient in asparagus is vitamin K which is involved involved in blood clotting, building strong bones and preventing heart disease. Roasting asparagus is pretty simple! Trim the bottom of the stalks, rinse and pat dry, toss with a bit of avocado or sesame seed oil, sprinkle with sea salt, black pepper and some minced garlic and sesame seeds. Place in a 400 degree oven for 15-20 minutes depending on desired tenderness.
