This vegetable is one I love to eat in spring! We can get it pretty much throughout the year but very often it comes from too far. I try to have as much local food as possible so if I buy these a lot in spring. You can also get them frozen, but I find that it doesn’t give such as good result as fresh ones.
This vegetable is so full of flavour, we can find it more easily after Easter. It is a good source of Vitamin B6, Calcium, Magnesium and Zinc, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Protein, Vitamin A (18%), Vitamin C (12%), Vitamin E (Alpha Tocopherol), Vitamin K, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Folate, Iron (5%), Phosphorus, Potassium, Copper, Manganese and Selenium.
