Grilled Asparagus

Grilled Asparagus

With the official start of football season around the corner, it’s time to tailgate. Sundays are so much better this time of the year! To celebrate, I joined a group of 64 bloggers (two for each team) from all over the country to bring you recipe ideas for a terrific football party. Click on their links at the end of this post to join in. 

Grilled Asparagus SpearsGrilled asparagus is so easy to make and it tastes like you spent some time and know-how preparing it. Throw this on the grill for your next tailgating event, barbecue, or party and I promise not to tell anyone how easy it was for you.

I am a vegetarian most of the time and that can make grilling a challenge when all anyone wants to eat is grilled meat. Finding delicious vegetables to grill that will satisfy both meat-eaters and vegetarians is a big win. Feel free to personalize this recipe adding your own touches including lemon, bacon, garlic, or whatever you imagine.

Grilled Asparagus Spears

Ingredients

  • 1 lb asparagus, washed and trimmed
  • 1 tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • Sea salt and ground pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
  2. Lay a piece of foil on the counter. Make sure it is big enough to allow the asparagus to be sealed up.
  3. Place asparagus on the foil. Drizzle with olive oil and top with salt and pepper.
  4. Fold the foil into a packet, sealing it tightly.
  5. Place foil packet on grill, making sure asparagus is perpendicular to the grill grates.
  6. Grill 3-4 minutes on both sides.
  7. Remove from grill and enjoy!
