Grilled Asparagus Flatbread

So we are Month number two into my Loblaws ambassadorship, and I’m so excited to be highlighting asparagus recipes as the store’s Food Alert Item for June! Though I’m a big fan of the vegetable now, I haven’t always been. My mom used to serve it steamed and plain when I was a kid, and as an adult I can’t help but shake my head – asparagus has so much flavour and is one of the most versatile summer vegetables!

This Grilled Asparagus Flatbread makes the best use out of this delectable veggie, and it’s going to become your next go-to dinner on the BBQ, trust me! I like to also call it my “Farmer’s Market Pizza” because it’s filled with all kinds of delicious vegetables that are now in season, like zucchini and corn.

I have to say I’ve been making the most out of summer so far – I’m so happy that this year I’ve been able to actually enjoy the nice weather for once. I don’t know if you can relate, but summer can be depressing if you have to work inside or if you’re working as a summer student at an outdoor attraction. I was a lifeguard for five years and though I got to work outside for a couple summers, it made me feel like I was missing out sometimes seeing everyone else around me having fun while I had to work for 12 hours every day!

Then, by the time I got an office job last summer I found myself wishing I was back lifeguarding because being in an office Monday to Friday from 9-5 was even more depressing – especially considering the fact that we had beautiful weather in Toronto last summer! The grass is always greener on the other side, right?!

This summer, I’m easily making the season all about food and time outdoors. Since moving home, I’ve really seen how much work goes into maintaining my parents’ backyard – it’s insane! I swear they are outside gardening for the whole weekend moving plants around, cutting the grass and just making the place an oasis. It’s literally the perfect spot to sit outside with a glass of wine and some of this Grilled Asparagus Flatbread.

Asparagus is in season from February to June of every year, but I’ve noticed that there are more varieties of it than ever around this time of the year – I’ve spotted purple and white asparagus at Loblaws over the past couple of weeks and they have been on my radar to try for a while! Asparagus is a very versatile veggie because you can literally enjoy it any which way: raw in salads, cooked in omelets and soups, oven-roasted, steamed, barbecued…the options are endless, and its subtle flavour pairs well with just about anything. I traditionally enjoy asparagus as a side dish to meat or chicken, but I think it’s just become my new favourite pizza topping!

Top with remaining mozzarella and asiago, then place on grill for 10-15 min, watching bottom of flatbread closely. You may have to move it higher up off the direct heat for the remaining 5 min of cook time.
