Grilled Asparagus Dip

I had a nice warmish evening, some asparagus, a nice BBC tv show on Netflix (Wallender) and pita chips. What to do? Make a grilled asparagus dip of course.

On the grill (aluminum foil and olive oil bed with salt and pepper) or under the broiler roast up the following:

  • 1 largish bunch asparagus, ends snapped, cleaned – guessing about 1.25 lbs
  • 3-4 skinny green onions
  • 3 cloves of garlic, halved

When a bit charred, soft and full of grilled goodness dump these in the food processor with

  • 2 Tb mayonnaise
  • dash Worcestershire sauce
  • dash hot sauce (Trader Joe’s – what else)
  • juice from 1/2 lemon and/or lime
  • more salt and pepper as needed
  • about 1/8th cup Parmesan cheeseĀ  (I eyeballed it)
  • a bit of lemon zest (poor thing was nearly naked already or I would have added more)

Whirl until smooth. Chill or if like us you can’t wait just start dipping in some pita chips.
