Grilled Asparagus

I love almost any vegetable cooked on the grill, and if we are grilling meat or seafood I usually try and grill my vegetable sides as well. Asparagus is one vegetable that is delicious grilled lightly brown and just tender to the bite. This is a very easy recipe that can be put together and coked in minutes once your grill is already hot.

 
Why Healthy

  • As well as being strong in anti-inflammatory phytonutrients, asparagus provides a wide variety of antioxidant nutrients, including vitamin C, beta-carotene, vitamin E, and the minerals zinc, manganese, and selenium.
  • Grilling vegetables brings out the natural sugars and flavor, requiring simply a little seasoning and a brush of olive oil to create a healthy vegetable side dish.
