Nutty Charred Broccoli
Sometimes, it's not the WHAT it's the HOW. What we eat can get boring day in and day out. This is especially true when it comes to veggies. We often steam, sauté or boil our veggies and they can be super plain, bland and BORING that way. Simply by changing up the cooking technique, delicious things can happen!
Meet char-grilled broccoli, a super easy, lean and green side dish that will have you singing the praises of this loved (and despised) green veggie!
This is truly a basic side dish, but cooked in a whole new way. The great thing about this is that while the broccoli is cooking, you can throw some chicken, steak or burgers on the grill too and cook everything at once, no mess! In this video, I simply added boneless skinless chicken breast, drizzled with just a little bit of the Stacey Hawkins Roasted Garlic Oil and Phoenix Sunrise seasoning and cooked it alongside the broccoli. Lean and green, made simple and easy... and totally DELICIOUS!
Preheat outdoor grill to medium high heat (around 350 degrees).
Rinse broccoli and shake off excess water.
Toss broccoli with oil and Dash of Desperation Seasoning. Dump into grill basket.
Place the basket on the grill (not over a direct flame) and cook the broccoli for 10-15 minutes, flipping the broccoli occasionally as the ends crisp.
