Perennial garden vegetable (Asparagus officinalis) of the Lily family, native to the East Mediterranean area, cultivated from antiquity and now grown in much of the world. Asparagus has been prized since Roman times! Its green stems function as leaves, and the true leaves are reduced to scales. Its edible shoots are cut in the spring. The name asparagus comes from the Greek language meaning "sprout" or "shoot."
Grill asparagus for an easy and tasty meal.
Choose fresh asparagus, break off the tough ends, and brush with a little olive oil and sprinkle on a bit of salt and pepper. Grill by turning or rolling for 7-10 minutes. If you choose thin stalks (which are not necessarily more tender), cook for less time.
They should be tender, somewhat crisp, and slightly charred.
