Broccolini is the smart and sophisticated brother of your traditional broccoli. Plus, it tastes great grilled and makes a fantastic side to any main course.
You can go a lot of different directions when grilling veggies but I tend to keep them simple and let the fresh ingredients shine. This is as easy as it gets, olive, garlic, salt and pepper...what could go wrong?
Category: Vegetables, Sides and Appetizers
Grill: Dyna-Glo Grill
Heat Source: Gas
Estimated Cook Time: 7-9 Minutes
Actual Cook Time: 9 Minutes
Estimated Cooking Temperature: 500 degrees
Actual Cooking Temperature: 500 degrees
Location of Purchase: Local grocery store
Cook Date: August 3, 2020
1-2 pounds Broccolini
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon garlic (3-4 cloves)
Salt and pepper to taste
Lemon (garnish and zest)
Optional: Red pepper flakes
Step 1: Trim the ends of your broccolini.
Step 2: In a Ziploc bag, add ingredients, shake to mix (this can be done well before and stored in the fridge for hours until cook time). If you want to had a touch of heat you can add red pepper flakes.
Step 3: Turn your grill on high, you want anywhere between 450-500 degrees
Step 4: I put the broccolini directly on the grill. My broccolini had enough surface area to be just fine. That said, a couple piece did fall through the grate...so, a basket works too.
Step 5: Grill on high heat for around 7-9 minutes getting a nice char on the outside.
Step 6: Remove from the grill, drizzle with a touch of good olive oil, finishing salt and some zest from the lemon.
