Lemony grilled asparagus with toasted almonds

Chargrilled to smoky perfection, this zesty asparagus is a perfect accompaniment to any main meal -- or even just on it's own!


  • 2-3 bunches of green asparagus spears
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Fresh lemon wedges, to serve
  • Toasted, slivered or flaked almonds, to serve


  1. Trim the tough ends from the asparagus, then brush lightly with olive oil.
  2. Grill asparagus spears over medium heat for 2-3 minutes until lightly charred, but still with a bit of crunch.
  3. Transfer to a serving plate, sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Scatter over the toasted almond flakes and serve with lemon wedges on the side. Best enjoyed warm!


    Broccollini is also delicious prepared in this way.
