Some oil and seasoning is all you need to make asparagus a delicious vegetarian addition to your barbecue.

  1. Heat the barbecue until the coals are glowing and there are no flames or turn your gas barbecue to high.
  2. Roll the asparagus spears in olive oil and salt. Cook on the barbecue until slightly blackened and wilted – depending on the thickness of the spears, 5-10 minutes.
  3. Remove to a plate and drizzle with lemon juice. Crumble or grate over your choice of cheese so that it melts a little on contact with the hot asparagus and forms a cheesy dressing.
