Grilled Asparagus



Do you ever have a craving for something very simple? I often do, and then I grill some vegetables.
Today it was asparagus, that I grilled for about 2 minutes, sprinkled with lemon juice and herbs, and finished with a gated Pecorino cheese. Light, healthy and easy meal for a middle of the week. 


See you,
Marina

  2. When something is in season like asparagus, having it simply prepared is often the best way.

    1. I absolutely agree, when in season, vegetables taste so good that they need just a touch.

    1. When asparagus is in season, we like it just fresh clean raw. That's the first crunch of the season!

    1. Norma, you are so nice! No, it is not from my garden. Those two raised beds and a small 10x10 feet plot I can't even call "garden"...:) Plus 20 pots with tomatoes, more herbs, lemon, lime, kafir lime, peppers, flowers... Well, you've seen my Gardening Notes page. I would like to have some day my own asparagus though... and many other plants too!
