Asparagus

These shoots can be prepared and served in a number of ways and make great appetiser or vegetable side dish when served with liberal amounts of butter or a hollandaise sauce. Due to the short growing season and demand for local produce, asparagus commands a premium price. Asparagus is low in calories with less than four kcal per average spear, which as part of a balanced diet can help weight loss. It is also very low in cholesterol, has no fat and very little sodium so can help to maintain heart function and blood pressure levels.
