Story
There are many, many natural organic aphrodisiacs, or so I learn. Who would have thought that humble asparagus could be a potent aphrodisiac? Or is there anything humble at all about the asparagus, especially when it has such an obvious phallic shape? Well, that is something worthy of debate. This vegetable is rich in in potassium, Folic acid and vitamin E, it can stimulate sex hormones as well as enhance your general well-being. Alrightee then! And that is how I came across this recipe Asparagus with Parmesan Cheese.
