  • 6 small red potatoes, unpeeled, quartered
  • 1 lb (500 g) fresh asparagus spears, trimmed


  • 1

    Add asparagus to potatoes in grill basket. Cook about 10 minutes longer or until potatoes and asparagus are tender, shaking basket occasionally to turn and mix vegetables.

  • Tip: Grill baskets make it easy to hold and turn vegetables on the grill, but a sheet of foil with a few holes poked through it also works.
