Nutritional values

This light meal not only tastes fantastic but also brings highly beneficial nutrients to your plate in the form of iodine, vitamin E, and potassium. Green asparagus, in particular, is also rich in folic acid, which promotes cell renewal and blood formation. Best of all: one serving contains only 90 calories!

Serve with a portion of brown rice to make this a more complete meal and add some satiating fiber.
