Grilled Broccoli

Another item to add to the summer grilling menu is broccoli. I never would have guessed to grill broccoli! This vegetable is one of my favorites and gets eaten weekly for dinner. It is easy as pie to grill. I applied the same method as grilling corn on the cob by wrapping it up in aluminium foil. 

Just make sure to keep an eye on it and grill until crisp, or to your liking. 

I love finishing if off with Parmesan cheese. It gives it extra flavor that makes you love broccoli even more! 

 Easy ingredients: Fresh broccoli, grated Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, olive oil and lemon juice.

 Combine the lemon juice, oil, salt and pepper; drizzle over broccoli and toss to coat.

Let stand for 30 minutes.

Then, toss broccoli and drain marinade.

 Grill broccoli, covered, over indirect medium heat for 6-8 minutes or until crisp-tender.

Sprinkle Parmesan on top and enjoy!
