I love to cook meals outside on my Big Green Egg - especially when the weather gets warm. I'm accustomed to cooking meats on the grill but I haven't tried grilling very many vegetables on the Egg. I found a recipe for Roasted Broccoli recently and even though the directions said to roast it in the oven, I decided to try it on the grill.
1 large head of broccoli
3 Tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar
Cut stalks into 2-3 inch lengths. Trim off all outer peel from broccoli stalk.
Toss with oil. Season with salt, sugar and pepper.
Heat Big Green Egg to 500 with a disposable aluminum pan in the center. Add broccoli to hot pan and cook 8-10 minutes.
Remove from pan.
Sprinkle with shaved Parmesan cheese.
This is my new favorite way to eat broccoli - grilled and topped with Parmesan. I loved all the crispy browned parts on the broccoli and the salty cheese. My husband liked the broccoli this way too but I think the kids still prefer to eat their broccoli smothered with Velveeta cheese. (oh well) I still like this
roasted grilled broccoli and I have a feeling that it will be a frequent side dish at our table this summer.
