Kids Can - Asparagus!

Asparagus Food Hero Monthly

  By dana.bean

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.
