“Each month we select a product that has been showcasing in this month’s healthy eating range, exploring a little deeper into each ‘Hero Food’ and why we LOVE it so much!”
Elior Marketing Team
This month’s food hero is a herbaceous perennial plant with long branchy stems and bud like tips. Native to the western coast of Europe, June is the perfect time of year for it to be harvested and eaten in the UK.
Water makes up to 93% of this plants composition, popular in appetizers and side dishes this month’s food hero has a delicate taste and vibrant green in colour.
Do you know what it is yet? – Of course, it can only be the asparagus!
Asparagus is the perfect partner for our summer Elements range, it’s low in calories and sodium, as well as being a good source of vitamin B and dietary fibre.
Our development chefs have incorporated this seasonal vegetable into a beautiful summery dish of ‘Smoked haddock & Poached Egg, Lemon & Chive Pancake with Baby Asparagus & Chickpeas’
