Meatless Monday 7: Grilled Onions and Asparagus

This Meatless Monday supper was a simple one, and aren't those the best?  We made use of local and fresh foods, preparing them as straighforwardly as possible. The flavors of the food - not the salt/butter/sugar trappings - but the real food shines through!

We (er, the DH), grilled spring onions (from our garden, Egyptian walking onions) and asparagus (from the farmer's market).  The only addition was a bit of olive oil to prevent from sticking.  What's not to love about asparagus?  And oh my - the grilled onions were so sweet, like dessert.

With this, we had a blend of rice/wild rice/quinoa and a plate of raw carrots, celery and beets (from the garden). 

My favorite type of dining - simple and unadulterated!

Sounds yummy! Just this week I added "grilled asparagus" to my must-try list because of an article I read. Mmm!
