SUPER SIDES: Garlicky Asparagus and Mushrooms

Another very easy and tasty side dish using our standard method of grilling vegetables on the barbecue.

I was inspired to do this mixup by a stand at one of our local farmer's markets that fried mushrooms in garlic. They're delicious and the aroma just draws you in. Deep fried mushrooms are not the healthiest thing, though.

This dish is and it's just as tasty.


4 or 5 spears of asparagus
1/2 cup sliced, fresh mushrooms
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Slice up asparagus into 1" pieces. Place asparagus, mushrooms, salt, and pepper into a plastic bag. Hold the top closed and shake up vigorously. Add the garlic and shake again. Add the olive oil and shake again.

Place the resulting mixture on a sheet of foil paper. Close up, grill on the barbecue for 20 minutes.
