Wild asparagus

wild asparagusUse the months ahead of us to enjoy wild asparagus as often as you like; Apart from the abundance of useful ingredients, the vegetables of the characteristic green color will give you many gastronomic delights. Did you know that you can eat them raw?

Asparagus was once considered a delicious delicacy whose specific bitter taste could only taste the selected palate, but today this plant is widely distributed and available to a large number of people. Wild Asparagus is a delicatessen that will flood the marketplace from the end of March to the end of June, while canned in stores can be bought all year, but then the satisfaction of their consumption is undoubtedly less.

Why is asparagus good?

Plenty of vitamins and a little calories
Asparagus is a plant from a lily family. Low calories, but high nutritional value. Because in 100 grams of asparagus, it has only 20 calories. The largest part, as much as 93 percent of asparagus is water. And asparagus contains 1.7 percent of protein, 2.6 percent of carbohydrates and 0.7 percent of fat.

Asparagus is rich in folates and vitamins C, B6, A, and this self-propagated or cultivated vegetable is abundant with vitamins K and E. In addition, they are a good source of thiamin, fibers, rich in potassium, phosphorus, sulfur, calcium and magnesium, many microelements such as iron, copper, zinc, fluorine, and iodine. Asparagus also contains a larger amount of fiber, which is why they act positively on digestion.

“Cure” for pregnant women
This bitterly vegetable is rich in folic acid (vitamin B9), which plays a very important role in the development of a healthy fetus. Folic acid, in fact, keeps the nervous system of the fetus and helps it grow properly. Therefore, for the women who plan for pregnancy or are in the first weeks of pregnancy it is recommended taking 400 mg of folic acid every day, and instead of replacements, it is advisable to eat asparagus as well.

They increase sexual desire and help with erectile dysfunction
Since ancient times this plant has been accompanied by aphrodisiac power. This is explained precisely by the abundance of folate, vitamin B, which in the blood increase the level of histamine, a neurotransmitter that increases orgasm. In addition, asparagus also contains herbal chemical protodioscin, which has been shown to increase sexual desire and even in some cases can help in the treatment of erectile dysfunction.

Strong diuretic

Asparagus is also a very potent diuretic, helping to alleviate urination and thus promote the cleansing of the organism. And it is also effective against constipation.

It lowers blood pressure and cholesterol
One of the richest rutin sources, of cholesterol-lowering flavonoids, lowers blood pressure and empowers weakened capillaries. For the bitterness that is characteristic of this fleshy plant, credit goes to the ingredients of asparagin and spargaurin, which accelerate the recovery of the organism after the disease, stimulate liver and bile function. Enjoy in the spring and in this unique plant and try it out in many ways.

And the recipe:

I often get the idea that the simplest recipes are the best so that this time I decided to prepare them on a salad I had enriched with avocado and sunflower and pumpkin seeds ​in order to get a full meal.

From asparagus, we use soft peaks.


4 handful of green salad (of your choice)
1 bunch of wild asparagus
2 young bow
1 avocado
1 bunch of radish
2 Tablespoons (TBSP) of pumpkin seeds
2 TBSP of sunflower seeds
1 TBSP of squeezed lemon juice (or lime)
2-3 TBSP of olive oil
Pinch of salt (sea or himalayas)


Wash all vegetables well.
Asparagus do not use whole but only peaks (remove the stems). Slice it on a small.
Cut the salad into smaller pieces, cut onions and radish on the rings, and peel the avocado and cut into cubes.
Mix all in the large bowl, add sunflower and pumpkin seeds, and season with lemon juice, olive oil and salt.
Mix well and serve.
