Mid-Week Grilling

Of the myriad 'food-related' activities we both enjoy, going to the farmer's market remains a top favorite. It turns an otherwise mundane grocery shopping activity(for him - I could spend hours at the grocery store) into a desirable outing. So getting a reminder call from hubby about this week's farmer's market only put a smile on my face.

Here's a simple recipe from this week's produce basket - perfect for an easy hump day dinner.

(I fiddled with hubby's camera in a miserable attempt at getting artsy with my pictures - lesson learned, leave the job to him!)

Grilled Asparagus with Roasted Garlic-Yogurt Dipping Sauce

1 Bunch asparagus
3 Cloves garlic
3 Tablespoons yogurt
Chipotle and habanero chili flakes
Salt & Pepper
Olive Oil
Grilled Asparagus:
  • Toss whole asparagus in some OO and sprinkle salt & pepper for seasoning.
  • Grill the asparagus until you they get charred black spots.  
*Tip* Put the asparagus on a skewer sparsely when grilling. It makes it easier to turn them all at once.

Dipping Sauce:
  • Coat 3 garlic cloves (or you can use a whole garlic head) in OO and roast until soft and slightly brown. You can grill the garlic over an aluminum foil or roast in the oven.
  • Peel and grate the garlic, add yogurt, chili flakes per your liking and some salt. Mix well. 

While I was grilling the asparagus, hubby practiced his culinary skills making a delicious omlette with onions, tomatoes, avocado and spices.

The weekend is in sight now...have a good one!
