    Rustic Asparagus Pie

    Ever Made A Rustic Asparagus Pie?

    With its bright colours and fresh ingredients, this asparagus pie will make your eyes and tastebuds’ delight. A rustic crust is simply a crust with uneven edges that is not necessarily cooked in a traditional pie dish. For a different dough, use other types of flour, such as whole wheat or chickpea flour.

    Asparagus, just like any other green vegetable, contains an impressive amount of vitamin K, which plays a role in blood clotting and helps maintain good bone health. It is also a good source of folate, thiamin, riboflavin, vitamin A, vitamin E, iron, copper, and manganese.

    Did you know that, in equal proportions, asparagus has almost the same quantity of antioxidants as a glass of red wine? The main antioxidants (lutein and zeaxanthin) found in asparagus are part of the carotenoid family and help reduce cancer and cardiovascular disease risks.
