Balsamic lamb with asparagus

Balsamic lamb with asparagus

It’s Spring, which means it’s asparagus season. While asparagus may be a more modest achiever in the world of health foods, this rather pungent vegetable does much more than make your pee smell. It’s a good source of vitamins A, C, and K and it ticks the boxes for the immune system, capillaries, bones, eyes, skin, and blood. Not a bad effort for a single vegetable, don’t you think?

As far as making your pee smell, you may be surprised to know this is actually a good thing. Asparagus acts as a diuretic, which serves to flush the kidneys and reduce the chances of developing kidney stones.

Why not incorporate asparagus into your Spring menus with this SoupedUp recipe for Balsamic Lamb with Asparagus.
