I grill asparagus all summer long and roast it in the oven in winter. It’s easy to make for a large crowd and cooks quickly at the last minute while you are getting everything else on the table. I wash and trim the ends, and then take the plastic bag it came in and pour several tablespoons of olive oil, a couple splashes of balsamic vinegar, and a couple splashes of soy sauce, smoosh it up and then add the asparagus and scrunch it around until all the stalks are coated. Then I place it on the grill or crimped foil lined cookie sheet and cook it for 4-6 minutes or until it almost cooked through, turning it over quite frequently on the grill so it won’t burn. You can squeeze some fresh lemon juice and sprinkle a little lemon zest over before you serve it, but it’s great just as it is. Click here for the recipe….
