Broccoli on the Barbie
Grilled broccoli may sound a little strange but don’t knock it until you’ve tried it!
Almost any vegetable can be grilled with fantastic results. Here are a couple ideas and tips to get you going:
Veggies to try: Broccoli, artichokes, asparagus, mushrooms, peppers (any color or type), zucchini, squash, onion, cabbage, Brussels, etc
Consistent size is important, make sure your veggies are all roughly the same size or you may end up with bites more done than others. They do not have to be bite sized-just similar.
Season well! Start with high QUALITY salt and pepper then get creative.
Butter or Ghee (Not Olive Oil! Olive oil is great for your cool salad but not great for high temperature cooking/grilling. You can learn more here:http://www.savorylotus.com/5-reasons-to-stop-cooking-with-olive-oil/ )
Foil lined grill basket. This will make clean up a snap and help avoid flare ups from the melting butter goodness. In a pinch you can make a foil tray by simply crunching up the edges on heavy duty foil but be very careful this will be flimsy and hot!
Keep an eye on your veggies! You know how “done” you like your veggies. Plus, unlike meat and fish, its easier to tell by sight when veggies are done and you can taste test without worry!
