Asparagus officinalis

Asparagus is an early springtime vegetable. It is phallic in shape and has an aphrodisiac reputation. Very rich in nutrients, asparagus is a springtime delight. It has diuretic properties and is helpful for treating stomach and intestinal issues. Asparagus is associated with the element water.

Asparagus is delicious raw or lightly steamed with ranch or other dip on a platter of crudités. Asparagus is a great side dish steamed with or without a sauce and is also tasty in stir fry.

My ex husband especially enjoyed asparagus steamed mushy on toast with butter.
