Quesadillas are great for family meals and they taste best when made with some fresh asparagus and goat cheese. Asparagus has a nice earthy flavor which comes out very well in these quesadillas. Combining goat cheese which is rich and creamy with the asparagus brings out flavors that are delicious. The taste of asparagus is largely dependent on the way you cook them and they taste their best even if sautéed in butter.

Health Benefits

Asparagus is rich in nutrients and packs in folate, fiber, vitamin A and C, vitamin E, and K. It is an excellent source of chromium which helps enhance glucose transport into our body cells.

Asparagus has a low fat and calorie content and has lots of fiber (both soluble and insoluble). Eating diets with lots of fibers helps feel satiated.

Cilantro helps improve sleep and lowers the levels of blood sugar. Cilantro also helps prevent infections in the urinary tract and improves digestion.
