Asparagus:

Asparagus is harvested from March through June, depending on your region. Note that thickness in no way indicates tenderness, which is related to how the plant is grown and how soon it is harvested rather than texture.

We suggest: Roasted Asparagus with Fleur de Sel and Parmesan

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Place wash and trimmed asparagus in a large bowl. Add fresh shaved or grated Parmesan cheese, extra virgin olive oil, Louis Sel Fleur de Sel, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Toss to coat evenly.
  3. Transfer asparagus to a baking dish in a single layer. Bake until asparagus is tender and beginning to brown, stirring occasionally, about 15 minutes.

 

Beets:

Vitamin-rich beets are at their best when in season in temperate climates fall through spring. Fresh beets are often sold with their dark, leafy greens still attached.

Peas:

There are two basic kinds of peas: garden peas, which require shelling, and snow or sugar peas, which yield edible pods. No matter which you prefer, eat them with gusto, as these little gems are an excellent source of iron, protein, vitamin C and soluble fiber.
