Fresh asparagus can be cooked in many ways such as boiling, steaming and grilling. To grill asparagus, trim 1 pound and lightly toss the spears with olive oil, salt and pepper. Grill the asparagus over high heat for 2-3 minutes or until desired tenderness has been reached.
A recipe for baking asparagus is as follows: Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. In a large bowl, toss 1 bunch of asparagus with 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Sprinkle 1 1/2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, 1 clove minced garlic, 1/2 teaspoon pepper and 1 teaspoon sea salt. Place on a baking sheet and bake until tender (12-15 minutes). Add a squeeze of fresh lemon.
