  • 1 pound asparagus, ends trimmed or snapped off Note 1
  • 1-2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon garlic salt
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon Parmesan cheese, shredded optional Note 3


  • Preheat the grill to 450 degrees. 
  • Season asparagus with olive oil, black pepper, garlic salt, and onion powder. 
  • Reduce heat on the grill to about 375 degrees. Lay your asparagus diagonally on the grill. (Asparagus will not fall through the grates). You can also use a vegetable grill pan.
  • Close the lid on grill for about 1-2 minutes. Open the lid, move around the asparagus to let the stalks finish cooking to your desired tenderness. Feel free to sprinkle fresh Parmesan cheese on the asparagus after they are removed from the grill! 


Note 1: As for peeling asparagus, if the stalks are very thick, I peel the stalks to help the asparagus be more tender. If the asparagus is thin, I do not peel them. 
Note 2: Save your ends and store them in a veggie scraps bag in the freezer. Use your veggie scraps to make Homemade Vegetable Stock.
Note 3: If you are not Vegan and love cheese, feel free to sprinkle some fresh Parmesan cheese on top of the asparagus after they are grilled. Yummy!
