Green asparagus

Asparagus are supposed to be white, right? No way! We are fans of the green variety. WhyThe flavour is much fuller and more powerful than white asparagus. But how do our asparagus actually get their green colour? It’s because they grow above ground and have therefore seen the sunlight.

ORIGIN

Green asparagus originated in Egypt, but the ones we enjoy come mainly from Mexico and Peru.  

TASTE

The flavour of green asparagus is often associated with earthy and nutty flavours. They contain a subtle spiciness that set them apart from white asparagus. Besides flavour, green asparagus have a distinctive texture. They are juicy, crunchy and have a pleasant bite.  

 

USE AND PREPARATION

Really simple! All you have to do is cut off the white woody base, and you’re ready to go! The versatility of green asparagus knows no bounds. You can boil, steam, grill, stir-fry, and incorporate them with other vegetables in various dishes, like casseroles.  

 

STORAGE ADVICE

Remove the rubber band (if there is one) and store the asparagus in a plastic bag in the crisper drawer of your fridge. This way, you can enjoy your asparagus for longer!
