Instructions

  1. If making Lemon Dill Cream Cheese- Let cream cheese soften for about 10 mins on counter. Place into small mixing bowl. Add dill, about 1 tsp lemon zest and about 1-2 tsp lemon juice. Mix well with either hand mixer or by hand with fork.
  2. If grilling eggplant & asparagus- Slice eggplant into about 1/4 in. steak slices. Lay on cookie sheet and lightly salt to remove extra water. Let sit for about 15 mins. With a paper towel absorb water. Turn slices over and repeat. Once eggplant slices have sweated, spray both sides with an olive oil spray and grill over med/high heat for 4-5 mins per side.
  3. For the asparagus, clean & cut off bottom tough portion. Lay spears on plate and either drizzle with olive oil or spray with olive oil spray. Lightly salt. Grill over med/high heat for approximately 5 mins, turning every min or so.
  4. For hardboiled eggs- Place eggs in small saucepan and cover with cold water one inch above eggs. Place over high heat and bring to a rolling boil uncovered. Cover and turn off heat. Let the eggs sit in the hot water for 6-15 mins. The longer the time, the firmer the egg. Once the time is met, drain and pour cold water over to stop the cooking process. This may need to be done a few times. On the final drain place in refrigerator until ready to peel.
