Spring is here! This week many of us are planting our vegetable gardens so that we can reap the benefits of our hard work. We will not only be able to enjoy our veggies when they are ripe and in season, but also all year long. I love it when our veggies are in season, but I do also freeze them. Spring also means that we can buy fresh Ontario asparagus at our local farmer’s markets! Asparagus is delicious! I used to only eat asparagus steamed. Yes I was boring…

The past few years I have been grilling many more of my vegetables. Asparagus is one of those vegetables. I love it when it’s in season, but I do also freeze it.

Grilled Asparagus Spears (Paleo/ Vegan)

1 lb. asparagus

1 Tbsp. olive oil

sea salt and pepper to taste

Preheat bbq to medium high heat.

Wash asparagus and cut off and discard approximately one inch of bottom (the tough woody part). Toss asparagus in olive oil and sea salt and pepper.

Either spear asparagus first or just place right on the grill. Be sure if its not speared, to place asparagus the opposite way of the grill. Turn after approximately five minutes. Let cook for five more minutes or until desired tenderness has been reached.

  1. Oh I love asparagus. I have really been enjoying buying it at the market and making it. This sounds like a great way to make it. I have never tried freezing asparagus – I do it with fruits, but haven’t tried it with veggies. Good idea!
    Thanks so much for sharing this at Healthy Vegan Fridays! I’m pinning & sharing. Looking forward to what you share again soon!
