Grilled Broccolini

Brocollini is one of my favorite vegetables to grill. The thinner stalks allow it to cook evenly, allowing for a char on the tops and a tender-crisp stalk. I love the simple flavors of garlic, chili and lemon in this recipe. This Grilled Brocollini side dish couldn’t be any easier and it’s always a big hit. 


1 pound broccolini

4 Tablespoons olive oil
