This delicious, simple dish contains tons of high-quality lean protein as well as folic acid from the asparagus, a water-soluble vitamin which helps support blood formation and cell renewal, among other things.
You can also use white asparagus in this dish. Just remember they'll need about 3-4 minutes more cooking time than standard green asparagus.
