Ciabatta and grilled asparagus

Today I tried my hand at making ciabatta bread, using the recipe from this link Pease Pudding – ciabatta bread recipe I ended up with a pretty good loaf of bread, it was fun to make and there is no kneading involved so it’s easier on the wrists (plus, no waiting for a starter, unlike most ciabatta recipes) the bread turns out nice and airy with a lovely light texture and crispy exterior (and its a huge loaf, seriously, it was as big as my pan by the time it came out of the oven)

I also grilled some asparagus for supper and thought I would share my recipe for it:

Grilled Asparagus

Place 30 to 40 pieces of asparagus (to prepare asparagus, you will need to rinse the spears and break off the tough ends) in a large Ziploc.

In a small jar mix:

3 tablespoons each of vinegar and water

1/2 teaspoon light olive oil

1 pinch each of red pepper and garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon each of dried basil and dried oregano

Shake jar well and pour over asparagus.
Refrigerate for an hour or more and than grill the asparagus spears for 5-10 minutes, until nicely charred and just fork tender, turning them every few minutes so that they brown relatively evenly.
OR
If you’re like me and prefer to grill veggies on your George Forman than simply place them on the preheated George for 5 to 10 minutes.
