You’ll find that not only does the bright green flavor scream spring but so does the seasonal veggies. It’s tasty and nutritious. Asparagus is packed with essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. With the added bonus of being low in calories. We added spinach to give it that added bright green color.
