There is something to be said for simplicity... and vegetables.
Grilled asparagus is like the perfect relationship. It's good for you, requires a bit of seasoning, but the road is smooth and rock free with no tears or arguments. Perfectly low maintenance.
Sometimes the most simple preparation can be the most delicious. In the case of asparagus, nothing beats tossing it with a little bit of oil and some salt and pepper (or some chicken/steak spice- my personal favourite) and throwing it onto the grill. You hardly need a recipe for this - but I thought I would share the idea because this is probably my favourite vegetable preparation. I could eat these babies like candy.
I find it best when done on the barbecue but fear not, you can also get a similar effect from roasting the asparagus in the oven - although it won't have that grilled vegetable taste- it's still good though!
It's spring! Roast some asparagus up. You won't regret it. Your body will thank you.
Perfect. Simple. Delicious.
