Grilled Asparagus with Parmesan

After ten minutes on the grill, this Grilled Asparagus with Parmesan is ready to go with its grassy, slightly sweet, and enjoyably cheesy flavor profile.




  1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
  2. Place grill pan for vegetables on top of grill to heat it while you prep the asparagus. You can also cook the asparagus directly on the grill, but choose asparagus on the thick side and place the spears perpendicular to the grates.
  3. Trim the woody ends of the asparagus. Place the spears in a bowl or plastic zipper bag and toss with the oil and salt and pepper to coat.
  4. Lay the asparagus on the grill pan or directly on the grill and cook, turning every 2 minutes, until the spears are browned to your liking, about 10 minutes.
  5. Remove the asparagus from the grill to a serving plate and sprinkle with cheese. Serve hot.


Be sure to use freshly grated parmesan cheese for the best flavor and appearance, and thick fresh asparagus for grilling.
