Asparagus Dipping Sticks

I love all the delicious ways to make asparagus, including this recipe for Asparagus Dipping Sticks – one of our favorites! Served plain or dipped in our pizza sauce, they’re a tasty (and healthy) addition to any occasion.

If you are looking for a vegetable that packs a nutritious punch, asparagus is a great candidate. It provides vitamins K, B, A, C and E as well as folate, potassium and zinc. The folate helps your body produce neurotransmitters that may support your mood, and studies have shown that eating asparagus may also help lower your blood pressure. Asparagus is also good for digestive health—it contains a natural soluble fiber (inulin) that’s considered a prebiotic which feeds the good bacteria in your gut.  Pretty impressive stats for this tall and skinny vegetable, huh?!  I think I’m going to eat asparagus every day while it’s in season!
