Grilling is one of my favorite ways to enjoy asparagus. As a matter of fact as the weather gets warmer I like grilled just about anything!
This is a very simple way to cook asparagus and it’s quick too. Try serving it with a squish of fresh lemon or a drizzle of balsamic vinegar when it’s done cooking. Enjoy!

Yield: Serves 2 generously
- 1 bunch of asparagus, trimmed and peeled
- 1 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil or cooking spray

Preheat grill over medium high.
Pop them on the grill, turning the spears once or twice, just until the thickest part of the asparagus is fork tender. They will take between seven and fifteen minutes depending on their size.
