Asparagus is one of those foods that when barbecued, needs little flavor enhancement because the natural flavors are so incredible on their own. For an easy and healthy vegetarian and vegan side dish for your barbecue, try this easy recipe for grilled asparagus.

A nice quality olive oil will serve you well when making any simple grilled vegetable dish, and same with your salt and pepper: use a nice kosher salt or sea salt, and fresh ground black pepper.
