White Asparagus Recipes
No, you're not seeing a ghostly apparition of your favorite veggie. White asparagus is simply green asparagus but without the chlorophyll, which gives plants their green color. With a slightly more fibrous texture and sweeter taste, white asparagus can be used in practically any green asparagus recipe. It's a particularly popular ingredient in Germany, meaning you'll find plenty of European dishes that feature this faintly colored veggie.
