Cook in-season: Asparagus egg muffins

  • Asparagus can be green, white or even purple in color. The green variety is most common.
  • Asparagus is an excellent source of vitamin K, which helps prevent the thinning of bones (osteoporosis). Vitamin K also helps absorb and use calcium in your body.
  • Asparagus flourishes in Minnesota due to the cold wintertime temperature, which gives the plant a rest period to fully grow and mature.
