Hands-on Time:  10 minutes
Total Time:  20 minutes
Serves 4

  • 1 bunch broccoli
  • 2 lemons
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper

Cut broccoli into 8 large spears and cut lemons into quarters.  In a large bowl, toss with olive oil; season with salt and pepper.  Grill the broccoli and lemons over medium heat, turning occasionally, until tender and lightly charred, 10 to 15 minutes.  Squeeze the lemons over the broccoli and drizzle with additional olive oil.

As always, on the never ending hunt for good side dishes.  From Real Simple’s 10 Ideas for Broccoli, this is a good recipe to try when you’ve got the grill going in the late spring and summer months.  I served this along side the yummy Creamy Pecorino Pasta with grilled chicken cutlets.  I wasn’t a huge fan of this broccoli side dish though.  I think it has to do with me liking my broccoli steamed and softer rather than so crisp and more raw.
