    Why cook all the nutrients out of it when you can eat it straight outta the bag?
    It's equally tasty and never hurts anyone!
    It's understandable if you have to cook it to make it look pretty for the Mrs. but let's be honest folks, Asparagus on a plate looks like a supermodel compared to Broccoli.

    Eat it maybe twice a year at most. I like the taste of it but it makes my pee stink something awful.

    I read a recent article that said something in asparagus causes breast cancer to spread. Weird because you usually see articles saying to eat veggies.

    I was just thinking seeing these weeds that have these pokey stickers that likely evolved that way to help that plant species spread and wonder what other foods have some built in defense to allow them to continue to live and spread where that defense is lethal to humans. I saw a Japanese TV show that had these oranges that tasted good, but the tree evolved to have thorns to make people think twice about trying to get the fruit.

    I love raw broccoli but don't think I ever tried asparagus raw. Asparagus is one of the few vegetables I'm not too crazy about.

    I eat a lot of asparagus. Canned, fresh, roasted, in soups. Give it. Have it. Want it.

    That's a good thing. Your pee stink after eating Asparagus because it cleanse your kidneys and bladder from toxins...and it prevents kidney stones.

    99% of people who don't like asparagus are people who don't know how to cook. Pan charred asparagus with rock salt is the GOAT veg to have as a side for a good steak.

    No time to cook it before Diego Sanchez eats the tops off.

    I've found the people that don't like asparagus think it's only available canned. For years I didn't even know you could buy it canned, and someone brought me a can to try. It's disgusting mush. Awful. While I don't think it should be "charred" at all, it's certainly best cooked in a pan. I usually throw some butter in to melt once it's been cooked to the way I like.
    Raw asparagus is horrible. I would assume anyone that eats it like that has some mental "challenges".
