Asparagus: a simple side dish

Asparagus spears make a healthy and filling side dish for any meal. It's a great way to get some extra veggies into your diet and it's super easy to punch up the flavour. 

I love the taste of grilled asparagus and had some fun playing with some white and green asparagus spears. For this dish I marinated the asparagus spears (after removing the tough ends) in olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and chilli flakes.

 After letting the asparagus marinate for about twenty minutes I grilled the veggies (horizontal placement on the grill so that nothing falls through) for about 6 minutes, turning once to ensure even cooking. And that's it! Really so simple and a great accompaniment to pasta or a meat dish.
