Grilling Greens!

Try something new on the Grill, it is that time of the year to get the grill out if you have not already.....I have;)

Grilling on the Rack

  • 1
    Buy a stalk of fresh broccoli, looking for tight green buds. Pre-packaged broccoli doesn't work well on the grill because companies chop it into small pieces for packaging.
  • 2
    Slice the broccoli stalk lengthwise cutting it into three or four stalks. If your main broccoli stalk is thick, you may need more than three or four smaller stalks.
  • 3
    Blanch the broccoli for approximately 3 to 5 minutes or until the broccoli turns bright green. This reduces grill time and helps the broccoli absorb marinades and seasonings.
  • 4
    Season the broccoli by using a marinade or sprinkling it with salts. Grocery stores sell marinades for grilling, or you can make a simple marinade of olive oil and lemon juice at home.
  • 5
    Spray the broccoli with cooking spray or rub it down with olive oil before sprinkling on seasonings. Use regular salt and pepper, seasoned salt, garlic salt or onion salt instead of a marinade.
  • 6
    Place the broccoli directly on the grill over medium to low heat. Grill for 3 to 5 minutes on each side, basting with extra marinade. The broccoli is done when it is tender and slightly charred.
