Amazing (and Easy) Grilled Asparagus Veggies?

Do you love them or hate them?  Growing up I HATED them.  Give me a plain burger, stuff it with french fries (that is a veggie, right?) and I was good to go.

These days things have changed, sort of.  I still would not consider myself a huge veggie lover.  Personally, I would much rather eat chocolate cake (and WHY can’t chocolate cake be a vegetable??).

Side note.. in heaven I sure hope that God either makes dessert and sugar be crazy healthy, vegetables amazingly delicious or we just don’t have to eat at all.  My vote: the dessert!

But I am eating a lot more fresh, whole foods these days and that means veggies.  So I have to figure out a way that they can still be healthy and taste good.  One of the best ways that I have found is roasting.  It just changes how the veggie tastes, for the better. Grilling is very similar.  Roasting or grilling sweetens it up and gives it a lot more flavor.

We were invited to a farm the other day by a friend for a BBQ and he was grilling up some Asparagus.  I have never been a big fan, but he offered me some so I tried it and you know what?  It was pretty good.  I thought a squeeze of lemon or vinegar would make it even better so I decided to come up with my own recipe.

The girls were not big fans, but both tried it (without gagging..lol) and ate a whole stalk.

My husband and I enjoyed it.  It was something new and a great side for spring or summer dishes.
