Here are a number of favorite asparagus recipes in one list. Asparagus is a wonderfully versatile and easy ingredient to cook with. Fantastic in everything from salads and soups, braised, roasted, or grilled. It's also one of the richest sources of folate, a B vitamin critical for healthy pregnancies. Enjoy asparagus often when it is in season, and turn to other folate-rich foods, such as lentils, beans, and dark leafy greens, throughout the rest of the year, pregnant or not.
