Asparagus/Asparges/芦笋[lúsǔn]


Preparation & Cooking Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients:
- Frozen asparagus
- Mediterranean dressing

Directions:
1. If you are using frozen asparagus, steam for 3 minutes. If you are using fresh asparagus, steam for 5 minutes.

2. Toss with Mediterranean dressing and serve

For babies:
From 8-10 months (without the dressing), but it doesn't come under my list of essential baby food

Before adding dressing, I dish a portion out for J as finger food for older babies. For younger babies, simply puree it in a blender.

Nutritional Value:
Asparagus is an excellent source of vitamin K, the B vitamin folate, vitamin C, vitamin A. Asparagus is a very good source of numerous B vitamins - including vitamin B1, B2, B3 and B6 - as well as dietary fiber, manganese, copper, phosphorus, potassium and protein.
