Grilled Asparagus

I love grilled vegetables, they are easy to prepare and taste great! I especially love Grilled Asparagus, I think it is one of the easiest to prepare and cook. If you are a fan of asparagus, but have never tried it grilled you are definitely in for a treat. This is a very simple and quick recipe to follow.
Ingredients:
  • 1 bunch of asparagus
  • 3 tbls olive oil
  • 6 cloves garlic – diced
  • 1 tbls thyme
First rinse and then trim hard end off of the asparagus. In a small bowl combine the 3 tablespoons of olive oil, diced garlic and thyme. Take a basting brush and brush the asparagus with the oil mix. Heat up your outdoor or indoor grill to medium heat. If using an outdoor grill, I would recommend using a vegetable grilling basket or tray so that the asparagus doesn’t fall through the grates.

This particular night, I paired the Grilled Asparagus with my Caprese Lasagna Rollups and Garlic Shrimp. You can also find these recipes here.
