Asparagus with Tahini Sauce
Asparagus with lemon mustard creamy sauce
Asparagus are ridiculously low in calories, yet a filled with fiber, folate, and vitamin K. They are heart healthy, support a healthy pregnancy, and can prevent osteoporosis. They’re considered an energy booster and can help cleanse the urinary tract (stinky pee aside!).
They are also full of antioxidants nutrients and minerals.
Asparagus are traditionally a spring vegetable, but you may find them available during more seasons depending on where you live. They are a delicious vegetable and can be prepared a number of ways.
A quick tip to avoid “stringy” or tough bits is to break off the ends of the asparagus. If you bend them from the woody end, they will naturally break at the desired location. You may feel that you are “wasting” it, but trust me, the tough, stringy ends are not very palatable.
This recipe couldn’t be simpler and doesn’t require much time at all. Your oven does most of the work!
