Grilled Parmesan Asparagus

Asparagus gets a bad rap! Not sure why, because I find it quite delicious! However, it can get kind of boring to make all the time. A little bit of spices and cheese can go a long way! It gives the asparagus a nice flavor without being overpowering.


1 bunch of asparagus, rinsed and ends trimmed

2 tbsp grated Parmesan Cheese

Mrs. Dash Salt-Free Spices ( I used “Table Blend”) to taste

Garlic Powder-to taste

Olive oil/Nonstick spray*

*I use the Misto Sprayer instead of non-stick spray, which allows me to put my oil into a pump bottle, and then spray for my pans, baking dishes etc. Ingenious!

Pre heat your stove with a pan while you trim the asparagus. Spray your pan or drizzle a tiny bit of oil to coat the pan.

  • Put your asparagus in the pan
  • Lightly spray the stalks
  • Add your choice of Mrs. Dash seasonings/garlic powder
  • Lightly spray AGAIN in order to for the spices to “coat” the asparagus

Grill for a few minutes until the asparagus starts to soften and seasonings brown a bit. Repeat the same steps using the 2 tbsp of Parmesan Cheese.

The asparagus will be fully cooked once the stalks are soft but not mushy, and the cheese and spices have made a nice browned coating.

Enjoy as a side dish to any main dish, such as the coconut-almond tilapia or even a zucchini turkey burger.

Happy Eating!
