Summer Dinners – Grilled Asparagus

Asparagus is all over the farmers market and grocery stores. A sure sign that summer is here. A total bummer (gasp), don’t get me wrong I like summer but around here summer means 100+ degree weather! Summer would be perfect if it stayed at a constant 85 degrees.  On the upside there is asparagus! So, needless to say, asparagus is gracing our dinner table quite a lot these days. It even made it out to our camping trip two weeks ago. Yes, asparagus is the new camping food! I tried convincing the kids that they were better than s’mores.They did not believe me.

We love asparagus specially when it’s grilled with a bit of olive oil, garlic, sea salt, and pepper; it’s absolutely delicious but when paired with mushrooms it makes for an absolutely amazing summer dish!

Grilled Balsamic Asparagus

1 bunch of asparagus

Olive oil

Thinly sliced garlic

2 tbsp of good balsamic vinegar

Fresh black pepper

Pinch of sea salt


Make sure grill pan in nice and hot. Toss the asparagus and mushrooms in the olive oil with salt and pepper. Dice fresh garlic and toss. Spread everything evenly on the grill pan and let it cook for about 4 minutes and then flip the asparagus and mushroom, cook for another 4 minutes. Place on a plate and drizzle with good balsamic vinegar. Enjoy!
