About This Recipe

White asparagus costs a bit more than regular asparagus because it's grown under ground, so that it's not exposed to light and doesn't produce chlorophyll (which would turn it green). Because of this they have a lighter, almost creamier taste. So when you're feeling up to something different, give white asparagus a try! Smaklig måltid!
