I love green asparagus! They are not just delicious, asparagus are packed with health benefits: Anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer and antioxidants, heart heath and blood sugar regulation, just to mention some. It is also, a very good source of fiber, minerals, vitamins A, C, E, B1, B2, B3, B6 and K, as well as chromium, a trace mineral that enhances the ability of insulin to transport glucose from the bloodstream into cells.asparagus

I could eat them just raw, but while living in Spain I learned how to grill them. Just 3-4 minutes in a warm pan with a bit of extra virgin olive oil and the result is a crunchy-grilled asparagus soooo delicious. The most simple way to cook and enjoy these seasonal wonderful greens. While enjoying asparagus season, I decided to make an easy tasty soup with just a few ingredients to storage in the freezer. Here I share my recipe. Enjoy it!

Ingredients

  • 2 bunches of fresh green asparagus (about 2 pounds) washed and minced

  • sea salt and black pepper to taste
