I got this grilled broccoli recipe from Julia and Bridget on America’s Test Kitchen. They came up with it for an outdoor grill, but it works just as well indoors. We live in an apartment building in Manhattan so no outdoor grill for us but a grill pan over two burners on a gas stove does the job.
- 2 heads broccoli
- Salt & black pepper to taste
- ¾ cup olive oil
- 2 cloves finely minced garlic
- 1 lemon cut in half
Pre-heat the over to 375o.
Wash the broccoli and trim its stems. Put it in a large bowl and season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with minced garlic, juice of ½ lemon and olive oil. Toss the broccoli until it’s thoroughly coated.
Place the broccoli on a large sheet of aluminum foil, fold the sides up and add a ½ cup of water. Completely wrap the broccoli in the foil and tightly seal the edges. Reseal it in another piece of foil.
Place it in the oven for 30 minutes.
Place the ½ lemon cut side down on the grill alongside the broccoli on a grill and cook until the broccoli begins to sear.
