Grilled Asparagus Recipe
Are you ready for the ingredients, no need for pencil and paper either:
- olive oil
- garlic salt
- black pepper
Yup, that’s all you need for this amazingly easy Grilled Asparagus Recipe!
Should I cut the ends off of the asparagus before cooking?
Yes. Trim up the very bottom of the stems, about the length of a thumbnail. The bottom is a bit woody and it does not taste great. Trim the ends. Add the ends to your discarded veggie stock to make homemade veggie stock or add to your compost heap.
Do I peel the asparagus before cooking?
When making this grilled asparagus recipe, if the asparagus are thin, they will be tender. Very thick asparagus can be trimmed to give a more tender flavor to the asparagus. Discard the trimmings, add to compost heap, or add to your veggie trimmings to make homemade veggie stock.( Recipe coming soon)
What other seasoning can be added to the grilled asparagus?
My method of cooking is clear. I prefer for you to use your favorite ingredients. This is my easiest seasoning for asparagus! You can add any spices to these! Important to always season your food to add flavor! The olive oil will also prevent the asparagus from sticking to the grill. Add fresh Parmesan Cheese to finished asparagus for added flavor!
How do I store fresh asparagus if I am not making it right away?
Place the fresh asparagus upright in a container with fresh water in the bottom of the container. Keep them in the fridge until ready to grill.
Can make this grilled asparagus recipe ahead of time and reheat?
If grilling asparagus ahead of time, wrap the grilled asparagus in foil and reheat for a few minutes to warm up. We also love to munch on room temperature asparagus!
