There are three colors of asparagus – green, white and purple. Green and white asparagus come from the same plant variety, but white is grown underground to prevent it from turning green. Purple asparagus, often available at farmers' markets, is grown above ground. Its tender stalks have a higher sugar content and somewhat milder flavor than green or white asparagus
Asparagus spears snap off naturally where they are tough. Simply bend the spear near the bottom end and it will break off at the right point. Or, remove an inch or so of the "woody" portion off the bottom of the stalks with a sharp knife.
Low in both calories and fat, this satisfying main dish also has more than 1/2 cup of vegetables per serving.
