Grilled Broccolini

grilled broccolini

The more I grill vegetables, the more I realize how much I love them grilled. Not that there’s anything wrong with steamed veggies, especially when topped with a little butter. But there’s something really good about the caramelizing effect that grilling has, and these grilled broccolini were excellent. The red pepper flakes add just a subtle kick that goes nicely with the almost-sweet flavor of the caramelized tops. Yum.

Yield: 4 servings
Ingredients
  • 1 large bunch broccolini, stalks trimmed (1 lb after trimming)
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
Instructions
  1. Heat dual-contact grill such as George Foreman, grill pan or outdoor grill over medium-high heat.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, toss the broccolini with the oil, salt, pepper flakes and garlic powder. (I use my hands to make sure the broccolini is well-coated).
  3. Grill the broccolini for about 8 minutes on the George Foreman grill; 8-10 minutes on a regular grill, turning often, until stalks are just-tender and tops are delightfully browned and caramelized.
