Asparagus is the ultimate springtime vegetable. Packed with nutrition, asparagus supplies 66 percent of the daily recommended dose of folic acid in just one cup. But there’s more: Asparagus is also packed with vitamins C, E and A, and vitamins B1, B2, B3 and B6, along with dietary fiber, iron, manganese, copper, and phosphorous.
