This Grilled Asparagus with Orange is the perfect Spring and Summer side. It’s AIP, paleo, vegan and Whole30 compliant, simple, refreshing and delicious.


  • 1 bunch asparagus (~ 1lb)
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 2 TBSP olive oil
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 TBSP fresh thyme
  • 1 orange, sliced (optional)


  1. Preheat grill to high heat.
  2. Wash and trim woody ends off asparagus spears (~ 1 inch from the bottom).
  3. In a small bowl combine crushed/minced garlic with olive oil, freshly squeezed orange juice, sea salt, and fresh thyme into a marinade.
  4. Distribute marinade across the asparagus and orange slices (if using).
  5. Place asparagus and orange slices on grill and cook 2-3 minutes per side or until cooked to desired liking. Asparagus is cooked when you can easily pierce a fork through the stem.*


* Cook time here is listed for thin asparagus spears. Increase cook time if using larger/thicker stems but be careful not to overcook or asparagus will be soggy.
