Me and King Louis XIV….

AsparagusMe and King Louis XIV of France have one thing in common, we share the same love for asparagus. In fact he loved that vegetable so much that he had special greenhouses built so that he could enjoy asparagus year round! Unfortunately I cannot do the same….

But with Spring comes asparagus and I love that! I use to boil them for a couple of minutes…then I fry them in a frying pan for a couple for 1-2 minutes with some salty butter…then I serve them with some parmesan cheese on top…delicious appetizer!

Did you know that asparagus is a good source of vitamin B6, calcium, magnesium and zinc, dietary fiber, protein, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K, thiamin, riboflavin, rutin, niacin, folic acid, iron, phosphorus, potassium, copper, manganese and selenium as well as chromium?

FR: Moi et le roi Louis XIV de France partageons la même amour pour les asperges. En fait, il avait des serres spéciales construites pour les profites pendant toute de l’année. Malheureusement je ne peux pas faire la même chose…
