Broccoli can be amazingly delicious but you've got to cook it right. One of our favorite ways of creating flavorful, crunchy, still-green broccoli is roasting. We love broccolini tossed in spice and balsamic vinegar and roasted in the oven. Since it's still the tail end of summer, we're grilling outside as much as possible. When Kim Six, organizer of the Ultimate Recipe Challenge, said we were making broccoli this month, we knew wanted to grill it outside over an open flame! This flavorful grill roasted broccoli recipe is delicious served with lemon dill cedar plank salmon, which you can make at the same time. Be sure to scroll all the way to the end of this post to see even more great broccoli recipes from others on the Ultimate Recipe Challenge this month.
Grill roasted broccoli can be made in the oven but when it's warm outside, no one wants to crank up the oven. We created a meal based around this broccoli recipe, pairing it with a lemon dill cedar plank salmon. One fire and you can grill both of these recipes at the same time.

This broccoli recipe tastes fresh and crisp, all year long. Your family will never want to eat boiled broccoli again! LOL
Here's how to make it:
Cut the broccoli into large florets and wash well. Drain.
Toss with spices, oil, and aminos in a mixing bowl.
Line a hot grill with foil to prevent the broccoli from slipping through the rungs of the grill.
Spread the broccoli evenly onto the foil.
Close the lid of the grill and cook for 10 minutes.
Remove the broccoli and serve with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.
