Grilled Asparagus with cool mint sauce
One bunch of Asparagus (approx 1lb) One cup of fresh chopped mint leaves One-fourth cup chopped onion (optional)
Two tablespoons olive oil
Two tablespoons lemon juice
Two tablespoons of water
One teaspoon salt
One teaspoon pepper Pinch of stevia powder (as per taste)
Preheat the grill to medium-high. Wash, pat dry asparagus, and trim the base. Mix olive oil, half teaspoon of salt and pepper in a bowl and coat the asparagus. Grill the asparagus by tossing them occasionally. Don’t overcook; when it feels ready, remove from the grill. In a blender, add onions, mint leaves, lemon juice, water, stevia and remaining salt and pepper. Blend them into a smooth paste. Toss it over the grilled asparagus and enjoy the soothing feeling.
