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.
- 1 pound fresh asparagus
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
Gather the ingredients.
Toss together all ingredients, making sure asparagus is well coated with salt and olive oil.
Place on the grill and allow to cook for at least 5 minutes, turning occasionally.
Serve and enjoy!
TIPS: 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. Worry less about measuring and quantity of the ingredients, and more about the quality, in other words, in grilled vegetables such as this grilled asparagus side.
