I have a large asparagus patch and my favorite way to cook it is to spray a few spears with olive oil, dust with garlic powder, wrap in a paper thin slice of deli ham and put it on the grill until the ham is crispy and browned.

I love my George Foreman grill. First I spray a coating of olive oil. Then I put on the fresh veggies. LOVE sliced zucchini and asparagus on the grill. I sprinkle on some Greek Seasoning. Then George does the work. Healthier and quicker veggies.
On the Holiday Grill Veggies to help your diet...SO VERY EASY
Grill up some veggies....Eggplant is especially good. When grill is hot, slice eggplant about 1/2-inch thick. Whisk together olive oil / vinegar, garlic,herbs, pepper. Brush both sides of the eggplant slices with the oil & vinegar mixture. Grill 20 minutes. Or how about grilled Brocolli w/lemon, or Zucchini, squash, asparagus, peppers, or mushrooms drizzled w/olive oil..make Vegetable Kebabs~marinate oil and vinegar mixture for 15 minutes, then grill for 12 minutes. Try foil packets.
If you making vegetable kabobs, choose vegetables that have the same cooking time. Baby tomatoes grill much quicker than sliced carrots. Other choices are tomatoes, onion, asparagus, potatoes, sweet corn. Just watch the carbs. NOTHING COMPLICATED ABOUT GRILLED VEGGIES. Grilled Vegetable are EASY!!!
Asparagus and fresh parsley! These are natural diuretics and they work wonders. I especially fresh asparagus grilled (just have to put it opposite the grill grid, lol). I like the flat leaf parsley better than the curly, much more flavor. Put it on & in everything!
Canned asparagus is great to keep on hand. It works too, but you are gaining a lot of sodium and losing the good fiber. I've been putting parsley on my sandwiches, in my salads, chopped and sprinkled on just about anything.
