Asparagus is also known as Asparagus officinalis and is a member of the Lily family! Did you know that in addition to green they can also be white or purple? They are low in calories and packed with essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. For example 90 grams of cooked asparagus contains the following nutritional values:

  • Calories: 20
  • Protein: 2.2 grams
  • Fat: 0.2 grams
  • Fiber: 1.8 grams
  • Vitamin C: 12% of the RDI
  • Vitamin A: 18% of the RDI
  • Vitamin K: 57% of the RDI
  • Folate: 34% of the RDI
  • Potassium: 6% of the RDI
  • Phosphorous: 5% of the RDI
  • Vitamin E: 7% of the RDI

This vegetable side dish is so easy to make.

Grilled asparagus in foil is super easy and delicious and you only need a handful of ingredients. All you need is 1 lbs asparagus, rinsed and trimmed, 1 tbsp lemon juice, 1/2 tbsp lemon zest, and 1 tbsp olive oil. I also like to use  3 tsp garlic mince, 1 tsp salt, and 1 tsp black pepper. Other seasonings I like to add includes paprika, black garlic powder, onion powder, and red chili flakes. 

In order to make grilled asparagus in foil simply preheat your grill to medium. Then rinse and trim your asparagus before tossing in a large bowl with the oil, lemon, garlic, and seasonings. Next make two foil packet squares and separate the asparagus equally into each packet. Seal the foil and set the packets on the grill directly over the flames for 15 to 25 minutes. This recipe is so delicious and easy.
