Have many skinny asparagus stems (only). Can I use them in a veggie juice cocktail???
Hi all. This isn't earth shattering or anything, but I bought a bunch of asparagus recently and have been breaking off the tender stems and tops for dinners. I am now confronted by a bag of (about) 5-6" stems.
I've gone on a twice daily veggie juice cocktail kick (home done with my juicer) and I'm loath to throw out those stems. Can I add them to the juicer, along with beet, parsley, fruits, carrots, etc.?? Anyone ever tried this?
I have never tried that kind of veggie cocktail...should be okay, but keep in mind that even 'skinny' asparagus will make a BIG fat flavour addition, maybe a little too powerful. Perhaps you shouldn't bother trying to blend it in with something else, but let it star in its own Cream of Asparagus soup?
