Asparagus clocks in at over 10% of your daily value of iron from a 100g serving. That’s a pretty good amount from a vegetable source, making it a tasty way to up your iron numbers.

Asparagus is also high in vitamins A and C, two powerful antioxidants that help your vision and your immune system respectively. You’re also getting a fair amount of fiber from it, making it more than just a one-trick pony when it comes to your health and nutrition.

While you’ll often see asparagus served up as a side dish, you can use it in vegetable soups, or as a way to top a salad. Asparagus tastes great fresh, and has a crisp clean flavor to it.
