Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat, and place a sheet of aluminum foil on the grate.

  • While grill is heating, bring a large pot of water to a boil.

  • Drop asparagus spears into boiling water and stir gently; cook until the asparagus are bright green but still crisp, 2 to 3 minutes.

  • Drain the asparagus and cool quickly under a stream of cold water.

  • Place asparagus into a bowl and toss with olive oil, salt, and black pepper.

  • Place asparagus onto the foil-lined grill grate and cook until tender, 7 to 10 minutes. Turn spears over several times with tongs.

  • Transfer grilled asparagus to a serving platter.

  • Stir cilantro, light butter, fat-free sour cream, and lemon juice together in a bowl; drizzle over asparagus to serve.

Cook's Note:

Great side for my chipotle burgers! This can also be done on a griddle on the stove.
