Asparagus cooks quickly. Cook it until just barely tender. Thicker stalks take longer to cook. Overcooked or reheated cooked asparagus may become bitter and stringy or mushy.

❁ Boil or blanch in enough water to cover the stalks.

❁ Steam over boiling water.

❁ Sauté or stir-fry in a small amount of oil or fat.

❁ Roast or grill until lightly browned.

Kids Can!

When kids help make healthy food, they are more likely to try it. Show kids how to:

❁ snap off the woody end of stalks.

❁ wash vegetables under cool running water.

❁ toast English muffins.
